Fontana, Calif.- On Monday, September 13, Congresswoman Norma Torres and Congressman David Price, Chairman of the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development Appropriations Subcommittee toured the historic Malaga Bridge. The purpose of the tour was to gain project insight as they partner to advocate for project funding.

The proposed $15 million allocation is aimed at modernizing various forms of transportation including roads, transit, rail and bridges providing critical linkages in the Fontana community. The historic Malaga Bridge, completed in 1931 as part of the Pacific Electric Railroad, is in serious need of reconstruction.

“I would like to thank Congresswoman Norma Torres for bringing Chairman David Price to Fontana for this historic visit to the Malaga Bridge site. This project is important to our community because it will bring millions of dollars in badly needed infrastructure improvements and create a safe route that helps connect pedestrians from Fontana to the San Gabriel Valley,” said Mayor Acquanetta Warren.

As the subject of serious traffic concerns, the Malaga Bridge Project seeks to remove points of traffic constraint while preserving the historic bridge structure. Sound infrastructure is the backbone of the Fontana economy. It increases business productivity, connects workers to jobs, and builds thriving communities. Through the INVEST in America Act, improvements to the Malaga Bridge/current infrastructure are critical to keep Fontana moving Forward.
