Beginning Monday, August 5, 2019 through February 2020, storm drains from Gilbert Street and Imperial Avenue to Cannery Street and Garden Grove Boulevard will be installed causing temporary traffic delays.
To facilitate construction work, traffic on Gilbert Street, Imperial Avenue, Magnolia Street, Cannery Street, and Garden Grove Boulevard will be reduced to one lane. Work hours are 7:00 a.m. to 4:30 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 storm drain improvement will reduce the risk of flooding and road closures on Magnolia Street, from Central Avenue to Garden Grove Boulevard.
The Garden Grove City Council awarded the $3.5 million project to Vasilj Inc. of Irwindale on Tuesday, June 25, 2019. The storm drain improvement is included in the FY 2019-2020 Capital Improvement Budget and is funded by gas tax and drainage fee funds.
