Press Release
Paramount- In an effort to improve traffic flow and safety, Congresswoman Linda Sánchez secured $320,000 in federal funding for repair and improvements to Bloomfield Avenue in Hawaiian Gardens. The funding came from the Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (TEA-LU) that was signed into law on August 10th. On Tuesday, Congresswoman Sánchez attended the Hawaiian Gardens City Council meeting to present a ceremonial check of the funds to the city.

“I am pleased to have secured funding for improvements to Bloomfield Avenue in Hawaiian Gardens. These improvements will help improve the safety and appearance of Bloomfield Avenue. As one of the heaviest traveled streets in Hawaiian Gardens, Bloomfield is in need of repair and modernization to make it safer for both drivers and pedestrians,” said Congresswoman Linda Sánchez.

The improvements to Bloomfield Avenue will include a complete asphalt-concrete overlay, the construction of landscaped medians for safety, replacement of the curbs and gutters, and the repair of sidewalks and bus pads.
