Grass Valley is looking to improve traffic safety on Main Street at the intersection that includes the Holbrooke Hotel , Tofanelli’s Restaurant, and the Brett Harte. Assistant City Engineer Bjorn Jones says the traffic flow is challenging at the intersection of Church Street, where a number of incidents have been reported as a result of poor visibility as well as driver and pedestrian choices, because the intersection can be confusing with only traffic on Church Street forced to stop. A 4-way stop is a potential solution.
A second solution includes flipping the direction of Church which is one-way from Richardson Street between the Holbrooke and Tofanelli’s Restaurant. Currently traffic comes out of a narrow alley into a congested area. Jones says traffic used to go the opposite way.
The items are on this evening’s Grass Valley City Council agenda.
