Grant Road Improvement Project Phase 2 Continues

Park Avenue will be closed from Grant Road on the north to Edison Street on the south from 5 a.m. this Friday through 5 a.m. Monday, Sept. 18. The closure is in preparation for the paving of the new eastbound lanes and side street entrances along Grant Road from 1st Avenue east to Santa Rita Avenue. That paving will take place next Monday through Thursday. Additional side streets on the south side of Grant Road will be closed intermittently during that time, but residential access will be maintained. The speed limit in the area will be reduced to 25 miles per hour.

The project is funded by the $2.1 billion dollar Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) plan that voters approved in 2006. Grant Road Phase 2 work is from Stone Avenue east to Park Avenue.
