PALMDALE — The City Council today will consider an agreement with the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority for the Palmdale Transportation Center transit and infrastructure design project for $2 million in drainage improvements.

“This will alleviate some of the flooding that you see along some of the parcels that run parallel with the14 from Avenue R all the way down to Technology (Drive),” City Manager J.J. Murphy said.

He said the city received a grant for long-range improvements such as for high speed rail. The project will be the drainage master plan to ensure the infrastructure ties into place.

The City Council will meet at 7 p.m., today in Council Chambers. The meeting will be closed to in-person attendance as a result of the ongoing COVID-19 emergency, and resulting orders and direction from the County of Los Angeles Department of Public Health.
