CALEXICO — Local efforts to reduce air pollution were bolstered by the recent paving of two separate Calexico Unified School District parking lots near Andrade Avenue and Highway 98.

The $406,000 paving project resulted in a ribbon cutting ceremony Friday at the district’s maintenance and operations yard that was well attended by local, county and state officials.
