NORTHRIDGE, LOS ANGELES (KABC) — Driving on Los Angeles streets can be a rough ride. On Tuesday, officials unveiled a new street treatment designed to fix some of the city’s worst roads at a fraction of the cost. The city is testing the treatment out on one street in Northridge. “Full reconstruction of a street like this one costs between $600,000 to $1 million per mile,” said Nazario Sauceda from Los Angeles’ Bureau of Street Service. Mix 1781 — named after the year the city of L.A. was founded — is a street surface treatment developed by a private company and the city of L.A. to be used mainly on lightly traveled residential streets that are in need of repair. It costs only thousands of dollars instead of hundreds of thousands.
