Knott Street, from Garden Grove Boulevard to Lampson Avenue, is set to undergo street improvements beginning Tuesday, July 26, 2016 through October. Also, a small segment on Valley View Street, from the 22 Freeway westbound off-ramp to Tiffany Avenue, is tentatively set to undergo improvements from August through December.

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

Motorists are advised that traffic on Knott and Valley View streets will be reduced to one lane to facilitate construction work. Work hours are 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.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 at both locations 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 video detection system, traffic signal detector loops, and installation of irrigation and landscaping.

Valley View Street, from Tiffany Avenue to Chapman Avenue was reconstructed in 2014. This small segment was not included in the 2014 project, due to its location within the Caltrans right-of-way. The segment was later determined to be the City’s responsibility per a maintenance agreement with Caltrans.

The Garden Grove City Council awarded the $2 million project to RJ Noble Company of Orange on Tuesday, June 14, 2016. The street rehabilitation project is included in the 2015-16 Capital Improvement Budget and is funded by federal Regional Surface Transportation Program (RSTP), Measure M2, and local and gas tax funds.
