UPDATE (9:45 p.m.) – The Grover Beach City Council approved the construction contract for a project on Atlantic City Avenue Tuesday night.

There will be street repairs on 10 blocks, including Atlantic City Avenue and other nearby streets in the northwest part of town.

Construction is slated to begin next month.

The City Council also approved the design for the Newport Avenue Street Improvement Project Tuesday. It will impact 14 blocks from Oak Park Boulevard to 4th Street. The streets will be narrowed to include pathways and bike lanes.

 


ORIGINAL STORY (5:13 p.m.) – The Grover Beach City Council is expected to pick a construction company Tuesday night for the next phase of the city’s street repair project.

In 2014, voters approved a nearly $50 million funding package for street improvements in the form of a property tax.

Five years, later the city manager says they’ve completed 40 percent of local streets.

Up next is a ten block section of street repairs, including Atlantic City Ave. and other nearby streets in the northwest part of town.

That construction will begin next month.

It’s all part of the city’s 25-year road program, but there are even more plans to come.

“And later this year, we’ll be having the next round of street improvement projects and eventually we’ll be making improvements to Grand Ave. and Farroll Rd. and 4th Street using some gas tax funding that we get from other sources,” said Grover Beach City Manager Matt Bronson.

Another item on Tuesday night’s agenda is the final design of the Newport Ave. project involving 14 blocks from Oak Park Blvd. to 4th Street.

The streets will be narrowed to include pathways and bike lanes.
