(Washington, DC) Today, Rep. Grace F. Napolitano joined Rep. Joe Baca, State Senator Gloria Negrete McCleod, Assemblywoman Norma Torres, Pomona Mayor Elliott Rothman, members of the Pomona City Council and others in cutting the ribbon on the newly completed overpass which now takes Mission Boulevard over the SR 71 freeway.

Since 2005, Napolitano has helped secure $8.38 million in federal funds for the project.

“With this new overpass in place, commuters will have quicker travel times, and families living nearby will have safer streets near their homes,” Napolitano said. “I applaud local elected officials and the people of Pomona for working together to secure the funding needed for this critical project.”

Following the ceremony, traffic was allowed onto the overpass and the first cars began to cross over.
