Ninth District Street Improvements
Councilmember Neal and the Department of Public Works have just taken major steps to improve the condition of our local infrastructure. Just recently, we completed our annual street and sidewalk program. 
 
This year, we were able to conduct a massive street reconstruction and slurry seal program in the Ramona Park and Coolidge Triangle Neighborhoods, representing the largest street investment in those neighborhoods in recent history.These two neighborhoods were selected for improvement at the Quarterly North Long Beach Community Assembly almost a year ago.

This $424,252 investment from our Upland Oil Infrastructure Funds included removing concrete surfaces, constructing new curb and gutters, sidewalks and ADA ramps, constructing asphalt concrete pavement and resurfacing, and installing pavement markers, markings, traffic striping and cub painting.  
 
We also identified four bus stops and curbs along major corridors that were in serious need of repairs. Photos of those improvements are listed below. 
 
Next year, we have major plans to take our infrastructure improvement to the next level. In the weeks to come, keep a look out for a special newsletter with a preview to 2013, including some highlights of infrastructure investment to come. Have a look at  some of the photos below of the improvements.
