DOWNEY - A $79,175 contract to perform storm drain improvements on Firestone Boulevard between Old River School Road and Brookshire Avenue was awarded to a City of Industry firm this week.
The work is part of a larger $5.7 million overhaul of Firestone Boulevard that includes repairing roadway, adding landscaped median islands, and restriping the street to create three continuous travel lanes in each direction.
A stretch of Firestone between La Reina and Dolan avenues will be further improved with ornamental street lighting, bus shelters, palm trees, bicycle racks, decorative pavers, and more, city officials said.
Miramontes Construction Company Inc. was awarded a contract Tuesday for work on the corridor's storm drains. The firm will remove dilapidated corrugated metal storm drain pipe under the northerly sidewalk on Firestone between Myrtle Street and La Reina; construct approximately 640 linear feet of 15-inch and 24-inch PVC storm drain pipe; and construct a junction structure.
"As a cost savings measure, the portion of existing concrete sidewalk will be removed and temporarily replaced with an asphalt concrete walking surface as part of the future phases of the project," city officials wrote in a planning report.
Storm drain work is expected to begin in September and last about a month.
