Hazard Avenue Improvement Project

Project Overview

The Hazard Avenue Improvement Project will reconfigure the street to expand travel choices for all users. The project will accommodate through vehicles, add a new bikeway and provide for left-turns while providing better protected facilities for people bicycling or walking near homes, schools, parks, and retail establishments. The project is a partnership between the County of Orange and the cities of Garden Grove, Westminster and Santa Ana to enhance safety for all transportation users. With grant funding, the County is working with the cities to expand mobility options and provide a safer Hazard Avenue for everyone!

The Hazard Avenue Improvement Project will provide a through lane, a left-turn lane and add a protected bikeway in each direction. On-street parking will be provided in segments where it exists today and the bikeway or “cycle track,” will be placed between parked cars and the sidewalk, providing a more comfortable cycling environment for people of all ages and abilities.

The event was part of the Southern California Associations of Government (SCAG) “Go Human” series. Learn more about the event here Link Out .
