The Downey City Council on Tuesday will consider awarding a $1.087 million construction contract for road repairs on Brookshire Avenue. 

If approved, segments of Brookshire -- between Florence Avenue and Firestone Boulevard, and Imperial Highway and Gardendale Street -- will receive a noticeable face-lift, including new asphalt pavement; repairs of curbs, gutters, sidewalks and driveway approaches; and new pavement markings. 

Once repairs are completed, Brookshire Avenue between Imperial and Florence will be designated a Class III bicycle route, although there will be no dedicated bicycle lanes. 

Work is expected to begin in August and be completed this November.

Orange-based R.J. Noble Company was the lowest of eight bidders and is expected to receive the project contract.
