Congressman Ken Calvert today highlighted the inclusion of $5 million for the Bradley Road Bridge construction project in the fiscal year 2022 Appropriations bill.
Calvert voted along with a bipartisan majority of the House of Representatives to approve the bill on Wednesday, March 9. The bill was subsequently approved by the Senate and signed into law by the President.The funding was requested by the City of Menifee to replace a segment of Bradley Road at Salt Creek crossing with a bridge to address flooding issues during heavy precipitation events. The current configuration impedes traffic flow and emergency services to nearly 20 percent of Menifee’s population. According to the city, the construction of this bridge will eliminate that delay, while enhancing safety and access for all.
“The Bradley Road Bridge project will improve an essential access point to communities in Menifee that are effectively isolated during major rain events,” Calvert said. “It’s critical that we take action now to improve the Bradley Road Bridge and protect these vulnerable neighborhoods. I’m grateful for work done by the city of Menifee to prepare this project for construction and highlight its importance.”
Menifee Mayor Bill Zimmerman said, “We appreciate Congressman Calvert’s efforts in securing vital funding for the Bradley Road Bridge project, which will help improve the overall safety and wellbeing of our community. This $5 million investment in our city provides the gap funding needed to help us move this project forward and accelerate our construction timeline.”
