Lancaster official To brief AVBOT On REVIVE 25
Luis Garibay, Senior Projects Coordinator at the City of Lancaster, will discuss the city’s innovative $105 million REVIVE 25 street and road pavement revival and treatment program at the Antelope Valley Board of Trade’s Tuesday, May 24 Business Briefing luncheon at the Hellenic Center in Lancaster.
Garibay will update the audience and answer questions on progress of the program intended to treat all 1,700 lane miles of roads in Lancaster by 2025 – equivalent to the distance from Los Angeles to Chicago.
According to the city, REVIVE 25 is not a plan to repave every road in Lancaster, but a method to maintain and strengthen every road in Lancaster by using new technology and strategies to improve pavement durability. REVIVE 25 is being billed as a long term strategy that will allow the City to invest more in preventive maintenance to help avoid more expensive road repairs in the future.
City officials believe the preventative approach will allow postponing or avoiding more costly work over time, potentially saving an estimated $280 million over the next decade. Officials say complete road reconstruction would cost in excess of $500 million.
The City of Lancaster’s Choice Energy is the sponsor of this briefing. Reservations for the luncheon can be made by calling 661-947-9033, e-mailing email@example.com or purchasing on line at www.avbot.org. Only $20 with RSVP, and $25 at the door.
