The Farragut Avenue improvements, from Sherman Avenue to Elsworth Street, represents an outstanding achievement in enhancing a blighted street in the City of Moreno Valley. This project advanced several of the City’s strategic plan goals, which included improving public safety, upgrading pedestrian accessibility, ADA compliance, and enhancing the “Quality of Life” for Moreno Valley residents.
Prior to the improvements, sidewalks did not fully exist, thus affecting the accessibility for pedestrians. The project is within the City’s documented Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) target area boundaries that benefits low- and moderate-income persons and the disabled community by improving infrastructure and promoting a better living/business environment.
Cannon was retained by the City of Moreno Valley to provide civil engineering and survey services. Cannon’s scope included designing sidewalk, curb, gutters, driveway approaches, drainage, access ramps, utility adjustments, short property walls, missing streetlights, pavement repairs, and accommodation of upgraded water line on Farragut Avenue from Sherman Avenue to Elsworth Street. Temporary rights-of-entry and utility adjustments were also included in this project. In addition, the City recieved Housing and Urban Development (HUD) funding for this Project.
