Assembly Bill 2932 Accelerates Construction and Repair of Long Beach Sidewalks and Curb Ramps

(SACRAMENTO) – Assembly Bill 2932, authored by Assemblymember Patrick O’Donnell (D – Long Beach), passed the Senate unanimously today and is heading to the governor’s desk. AB 2932 expedites sidewalk construction in the City of Long Beach and makes other infrastructure improvements for city residents.  

“This bill removes unnecessary delays for shovel ready projects and ensures our city infrastructure is safe and accessible for all,” Assemblymember O’Donnell said. “Thank you to my colleagues in the Legislature and the City of Long Beach for your partnership on getting this important legislation passed.”

AB 2932 will allow the city to issue contracts for sidewalk construction projects that incorporate both the design and construction processes all in one-step. The streamlined process for bidding and awarding these contracts will expedite the upgrade of sidewalks and curbs.

The bill now awaits the governor’s signature. The deadline for the governor to take action on all bills is September 30.
