The City of Grover Beach successfully secured Federal funds from a Congestion Management Air Quality Grant (CMAQ) for the City of Grover Beach Train Station Expansion Project. Additionally, the City received an allocation of grant funds for construction from State Proposition 1B and from the Regional Surface Transportation Program (RSTP). The project consisted of the expansion of bus and vehicle access, parking, and loading areas as well as relocating the station’s ingress and egress further away from the busy Grand Avenue-Highway 1 intersection.
The City selected Cannon to provide Construction Management and Construction Inspection, and Materials Engineering, Sampling and Testing for this project. The project took place in three phases: Pre-Construction, including a review of the Stormwater Pollution Prevention Program (SWPP) or the Water Pollution Control Program (WPCP) for the Regional Water Quality Control Board (RWQCB), construction, which included Traffic Safety Management, and construction closeout. Materials installed on the project and specific documentation and required reporting adhered to Caltrans Local Assistance Procedures Manual (LAPM) standards. New features for the site included grading, paving, landscaping, site lighting, signage/striping, and the installation of curb, gutter, sidewalk, storm drains, water and sewer lines, driveways, retaining wall and miscellaneous furnishings and amenities. Off-site improvements included paving, concrete curb and gutter, pavement markings and striping, and storm drain features.
The project significantly improved and promoted regional, multi-modal transportation within the Grand Avenue-Highway 1 corridor and provided connections to key destinations such as retail shopping, State Parks and beaches, and the future Grover Beach Lodge and Convention Center. The project resulted in unique, more welcoming and accessible facilities that accommodate train-users, pedestrians, buses, and vehicles in a safe and aesthetically pleasing manner.Back to Service
