The City of Victorville Finds a Durable Solution in Concrete
Case Study: Bear Valley Road Project (PDF)
Excerpt: A Rough History
Bear Valley Road is a heavily traveled road that also borders the City of Hesperia to the south (at the centerline – the south half of the road is in Hesperia), carrying approximately 55,000 vehicles each day, with 30% of them being trucks. Bear Valley Road is a heavily utilized, more direct route for traffic accessing I-15 from SR 18 to the east for areas including Apple Valley, Lucerne Valley, and Johnson Valley.
Long an asphalt-paved street, Bear Valley Road was repaved with asphalt in 2004 but began to display rutting and deterioration immediately.
