Orange Grove Construction

I purloined the following notice about the construction going on at Orange Grove and the 110 from the city website:

Project Description: This project's three main goals are to 1). eliminate back-up on the 110 Freeway at the Orange Grove off-ramp 2). improve traffic safety on southbound Orange Grove Avenue as it approaches the freeway, and 3). improve pedestrian safety along Orange Grove Avenue. The improvements include the installation of a landscaped median that will greatly increase traffic safety. Traffic signals will be installed at Orange Grove Avenue on-and-off ramps on the south-side of the 110 freeway. As a result, congestion will be reduced on both the 110 freeway ramps and Orange Grove Avenue. Sidewalks along Orange Grove Avenue (from the 110 freeway to Columbia Street) will be improved and vintage street lights will be installed to provide greater pedestrian safety.

Hurrah! That little stretch could use a few more safety measures. I like the pink flowered trees, too.

This is such a big relief, every time I turn on or off of the 110 at Orange Grove I get stressed. Yay!

And traffic lights will make left turns onto Orange Grove from the southbound Orange Grove exit much easier!

Well, I'm going to reserve accolades till I see it finished and up and running. In my experience, rarely do any projects like this end up looking like their drawings, nor do they work as smoothly as projected by their planners. So, we'll see.
