County Center/Houston signal will be a flashing red beginning June 14; County green lights stop signs at intersections north, south of the city limits
VISALIA – Three intersections in around Visalia have been given the green light for signals or stop signs.
This Friday, June 14, the traffic signal at the intersection of County Center Street and Houston Avenue will become operational. The temporary traffic signals that have been operating at the intersection of will be removed, refurbished and utilized at another location.
“While the temporary traffic signals are being removed from the intersection, the new traffic signal will operate in an all red flash mode for four hours and the intersection will act as a four-way stop,” shares Sergio Alvarado, City of Visalia Associate Engineer.
After the temporary traffic signal is removed, the all-red flash period will end and the new traffic signal will be in full operation. For additional information, contact Sergio Alvarado, Associate Engineer, City of Visalia Engineering Department, at 559-713-4595 or at [email protected]
Two intersections just outside of the city limits will be getting additional stop signs after recent approval from the Tulare County Board of Supervisors. Stop signs will be added on Avenue 256 (Oakdale Avenue) to create a four-way stop at the intersection of Road 124 just south of the city. The county roads have a speed limit of 55 mph, have a high volume of traffic and there has been more than five crashes at the intersection in a 12-month period, with many of the collisions being right and left turn as well as right angles.
A single stop sign will be added on Mountain View Road at the intersection of Avenue 320 north of town. Mountain View is a new north-south road running from a new subdivision that “T”s into Avenue 320.
