The city this week awarded three contracts totaling $949,300 for traffic signal and water system improvements.
The largest of the contracts, for $729,500, went to Soffa Electric Inc. of Los Angeles for water equipment. The amount is 2.7% less than the city engineer's estimate, staff members said at Tuesday's City Council meeting.
Baxter-Griffin Co. of Stanton won contracts to install a traffic signal at Westminster Avenue and Roxey Drive and to remove median signals at the intersections of Garden Grove Boulevard and Euclid Street, and Magnolia Street and Chapman Avenue. Those contracts total $219,800.
City Manager George L. Tindall said the signal installation bid was a third lower than the city engineer's estimate.
