logo_pw_0.pngFrom now through March 2015, Brookhurst Street, from Chapman Avenue to Katella Avenue in Garden Grove, will undergo roadway improvements. Traffic will be reduced to one lane in both directions. Motorists are asked to use alternate routes to avoid congestion, however access for residents and businesses will be maintained. Normal working hours are 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

The unique, environmentally-friendly and long-term, cost-effective street rehabilitation project will use the full-depth reclamation (FDR) process, which rebuilds worn out streets by recycling the existing roadway. The old asphalt and base materials are pulverized, mixed with cement and water, and compacted to produce a stronger, more durable base. FDR prolongs the life of the pavement while reducing maintenance costs in the future.

The work also involves the removal and construction of uplifted median curbs and sidewalk, bus pads, traffic striping, and raised pavement markers.

The project is funded by Measure M2 and Gas Tax funds. For more information, please contact Project Engineer, Navin Maru at (714) 741-5180.
