VENTURA, Calif. - Aug. 23, 2018 - PRLog -- Ventura County Public Works Agency (VCPWA) is celebrating critical sidewalk safety improvements and road repairs impacting students and pedestrians in Ventura County. Under a new Senate Bill (SB-1), spearheaded by VCPWA's Transportation Department, both Camarillo Heights and Kenney Street Pedestrian Projects are now in the final phases of completion.

"The construction of the schools sidewalks around Camarillo Heights Elementary and Rio Real Elementary will assist in improving the overall safety of the school and the neighboring area," said David Fleisch, Director of the VCPWA Transportation Department. "Now students, parents and residents can feel safer walking to school and in their neighborhood."

To celebrate the momentous development achievements, two separate ribbon cutting events will be held onsite at both project locations. Supervisor John Zaragoza will be in attendance at the Kenny Street Project ribbon cutting ceremony, and Supervisor Kelly Long will be in attendance at the Camarillo Heights ribbon cutting ceremony.
