Willow Street Resurfacing Complete
Willow Street Resurfacing Complete

Willow Street between Redondo and Grand Avenues has been Rehabilitated!


Work included: resurfacing the pavement; replacing damaged curbs and gutters, driveways, alley entrances and sidewalks; reconstructing areas of deteriorated pavement; installing pavement markers, markings, traffic striping, signing and curb paint; trimming trees and shaving roots


 *The $660,000 project was financed with Proposition C funds, with no impact on the City's General Fund. 


*The street was resurfaced with asphalt containing up to 15 percent recycled material.


*Approximately 1,896 tons of road base made from recycled concrete, rock, sand and asphalt, and all concrete work included recycled waste ash, diverting these materials from our landfills.


*Approximately 1,696 tons of asphalt was removed, and will be recycled into new asphalt or used as base material on other street projects.


*This equates to 1,500 times the amount of trash disposed of by a typical Long Beach family over a one-year period.
