New Street Trees: Fairview Avenue & Mission Road
Public Works Park Maintenance crews completed tree planting and drought-tolerant landscape beautification along Fairview Avenue (above) in the San Gabriel Village business district surrounded by Circle Drive. Mission Road tree planting is being planned for installation in the fall, following the paving projects and after summer temperatures have cooled.

More than Ever, San Gabriel is Paving the Way to Great StreetsMore miles of streets will be repaved in the coming year than have ever been paved at one time in recent history and possibly in the City's history.
