For families that live along Sutton Way in Grass Valley’s Glenbrook Basin, the city’s sidewalk work will mean safer pedestrian options, said Tim Kiser, the city’s public works director.

That’s especially true for the raised crosswalk that will also act as a speed bump, deterring speeders and allowing people to cross the street more safely, Kiser said. Drivers, on the other hand, will have to mind the ongoing construction, caution cones and access closures until mid-October.

Funds for the $165,000 of sidewalk improvements to promote walking is a 50/50 match from Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ), Kiser said.

“This allows us to connect the segment of sidewalk by the apartment complex on the north side of Sutton (Way) with the Glenbrook Basin,” Kiser said.

B&M Builders won the bid for the project and began work Sept. 17, Kiser said.
