The City of Garden Grove announces the launch of a new Garden Grove Active Transportation Program webpage to highlight the City’s ongoing efforts to improve active transportation in the city and support grant-funded projects such as the Congressional Medal of Honor Bike and Pedestrian Trail, and BikeSafe Garden Grove. The webpage is available at ggcity.org/bikeped.
The webpage features grant details, program development and timeline, community outreach programming, City and staff reports, partnerships with outside agencies and organizations, and photos from various community events.
The City was awarded approximately $1.8 million for the Congressional Medal of Honor Bike and Pedestrian Trail in 2015. The project was part of the Caltrans Active Transportation Program (ATP) Cycle 2 Grant. The City has completed all four phases of the project which includes the engineering design, environmental study, Right-of-Way (ROW) certification, and construction. The trail is currently undergoing improvements through the end of 2020 which includes installation of new irrigation and landscaping.
In 2017, the City was awarded $74,000 for the fifth phase of the bike and pedestrian path project which is the non-infrastructure component. Funded by the ATP Cycle 2 Grant, the BikeSafe Garden Grove program aims to educate and encourage healthy lifestyle activities. Due to COVID-19, all outreach programs have been postponed. The City is in the process of developing outreach programs that follow current state and county guidelines.
