The City of Garden Grove was recently awarded a $613,000 grant from the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) for three separate improvement projects that address traffic and pedestrian safety needs throughout the city.
The first project includes the installation of protected left-turn signal phasing for east/west approaches on Garden Grove Boulevard at Nina/Ninth Street. This will allow left turning vehicles to make their turns safely instead of waiting for a gap in the oncoming traffic to make their left turn.
