Major Street Improvement Project Completed


Grover Beach, CaliforniaDecember 5, 2016 – Motorists traveling along Oak Park Boulevard are experiencing a smoother ride thanks to a collaborative effort among the Cities of Grover Beach, Pismo Beach and Arroyo Grande. The Cities joined forces on the North Oak Park Boulevard Rehabilitation Project, which provided a complete reconstruction of a 0.6 mile stretch of this well-traveled road.

The project was completed at the end of November after approximately eight months of construction. A ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the completion of the project will be held at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, December 13 at the corner of Oak Park Boulevard and El Camino Real. The public is invited to attend. Please park in the AJ Spurs parking lot.

Serving as one of the main arterial routes to Highway 101 for both the Cities of Grover Beach and Arroyo Grande, high volumes of motorists use Oak Park Boulevard each day.

Over time, the heavy amount of traffic traveling on Oak Park Boulevard caused significant deterioration to the road. Substantial repairs were needed. Improvements included the resurfacing of both of the intersections at Oak Park Boulevard and Grand Avenue, and Oak Park Boulevard and El Camino Real; full reconstruction of Oak Park Boulevard pavement section; new concrete curb, gutter, sidewalk, and cross gutters; new corner ramp work to comply with the latest ADA requirements; striping; sewer and waterline work, as well as other utility adjustments.

The project included public outreach with residents and businesses impacted by the construction.

“Thanks to all of the local businesses who endured the inconvenience of construction during this project,” said Greg Ray, Grover Beach Public Works Director/City Engineer.

Cannon Corporation provided Construction Management and Inspection Services for the project.
