No specific date was mentioned, but the City of Garden Grove announced that an eight-month construction project on Valley View Street will begin this month.
Valley View Street, from the 22 freeway to just north of Chapman Avenue will be reduced to one lane in each direction. Given the state of other streets in the Los Alamitos and Cypress area, this new project takes away one more option for smooth travel through the west county area.
The Seal Beach Boulevard bridge continues to bottleneck traffic throughout the day and Lampson Avenue is now under construction, taking away another smooth option for access to the southbound 405. Valley View is usually a slow go after work hours, so it was already a limited option for travel. With the new project getting underway, it puts the Cypress area practically on an island from freeway access.
All that is needed now is a Homeland Security checkpoint on Katella Avenue.
The Valley View project is a rehab project that is tabbed as an environmentally-friendly process that recycles and strengthens the existing roadway. Completion is estimated for April 2014. Happy motoring.
