Paramount Blvd. in Long Beach to be improved

June 6, 2011 12:00:00 AM PDT
Long Beach officials were on hand for the groundbreaking ceremony of a $2 million project that will improve a 1.5-mile stretch of Paramount Boulevard.

The stretch will be between Candlewood Street and Artesia Boulevard.

The roadway will get new paving, curbs and gutters.

It's all work Paramount Boulevard has desperately needed, local officials said.

They said the street hasn't been repaved in 20 years.
