Imperial County will receive nearly $24 million for road repair projects.
The money is from SB1 , the recently enacted Road Repair and accountability Act of 2017 , and will be used to to fund two projects. An approximately 3 mile stretch of State Route 86 near Brawley will be resurfaced at a cost of $5.5 million. The project is expected to begin in early 2018. The other project will direct $18.4 million to State Route 111 near Calexico and will involve rehabilitating the pavement of the roadway. This project will also begin in early 2018. More than $285 million has been allocated statewide from the SB1 funds anticipated.
