Y.V. TOWN COUNCIL VOTES TO PATCH AND PAVE BLACK ROCK CANYON ROAD

Everyone knows that Black Rock Canyon Road in Yucca Valley that leads to Joshua Tree National Park is in terrible shape, and everyone agrees that something must be done about it. At Tuesday’s meeting of the Yucca Valley Town Council, Managing editor Tami Roleff says the Council discussed what should be done, and where to get the money to do it…
The Town Council was presented with three options for the badly deteriorated Black Rock Canyon Road after accepting it into the Town’s maintained road system: Patch and pave it with asphalt for about $100,000, which won’t do anything to control the water drainage problem; reconstruct the road, complete with drainage improvements, for about $679,000; or prepare construction plans at a cost of about $50,000 to $60,000, so it’s shelf-ready and continue to seek grants to build the road. The Council voted to take money out of reserves to patch and pave the road for $100,000, AND directed staff to prepare shelf-ready construction plans to make the project more competitive for grants.
