The City Council of Rialto, Calif., voted Tuesday to make $3.8 million in improvements in a stretch along Foothill Boulevard, aka Route 66, reported the Contra Costa Times.
The work will include repaving the road’s surface, but also other improvements:
The city is looking at enhancing the pavement at Riverside Avenue and Foothill Boulevard with pavers or scored and colored concrete in a grid pattern.
The aesthetic portion of the improvements include monument structures at the east and west entryways of the city, new street-name signs and new bus shelters near Riverside Avenue.
Route 66 plaques and the city seal could be mounted on the bus shelters.
The city hopes to begin the work this fall.
