Santa Clarita / Antelope Valley : Residents Asked to Report Street Quake Damage
Local residents have until Friday to report earthquake-related street or sidewalk damage to the city, which will then use federal emergency funds to hire a contractor to do repairs.
The city has a list of “a hundred or so” locations needing repair because of the Jan. 17 Northridge earthquake and its aftershocks, said City Project Engineer Bill Yee. He said residents are being asked to report damage so nothing will be overlooked when a final list is submitted for bid Monday.
“Hopefully, we will get those they previously thought were insignificant,” he said.
The city already has spent $1.2 million in Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) funds to repair streets, gutters, curbs and sidewalks, officials said.
Yee estimated that less than $100,000 worth of repairs remain. They are scheduled for completion in October.
To report damage, call (805) 255-4954.
