Magnolia Street, from Garden Grove Boulevard to the 22 Freeway eastbound off-ramp, is set to undergo street improvements beginning Monday, May 22, 2017 through October 2017.

Motorists are advised that traffic on Magnolia Street will be reduced to one lane to facilitate construction work. Work hours are 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m., Monday through Friday. There will be no parking allowed in the construction zone. Access to businesses and residences along the construction area will be maintained at all times.

The improvements consist of full depth roadway reclamation and cement treatment, full depth asphalt replacement, replacement of curb and gutter, bus pad and handicap ramps, installation of storm water percolation system, traffic signal detector loops, and installation of irrigation and landscaping.

The proposed project will also include the closure of Larson Avenue at Magnolia Street. The project will remove the northbound left-turn lane, which will allow landscape planting in the median.

The Garden Grove City Council awarded the $3 million project to Griffith Company of Santa Fe Springs on Tuesday, April 11, 2017. The street rehabilitation project is included in the 2016-17 Capital Improvement Budget and is funded by Measure “M2” Fairshare, California State Tire Recycle grant, gas tax, and drainage fee funds.

Updates and construction dates will be posted weekly on the City’s Facebook and Twitter.
