Project Background

Voters approved the Grant Road Improvement Project and its half cent sales tax funding in May 2006 as part of the $2.1 billion dollar Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) plan. The improvements to the five-mile section of Grant Road between Oracle Road and Swan Road include widening to six lanes with bike lanes, and streetscape and pedestrian improvements to create a state-of-the-art, multi-modal transportation corridor.
