The project consists of: Widening of Demaree Street at the Demaree and Goshen intersection; traffic signal replacements; modification of the Goshen Trail intersection with the railroad and Demaree; railroad crossing coordination and upgrades; removal and replacement of county road sections; median improvements; upgrades to pedestrian accessibility; striping and signage; and other necessary improvements.
The project manager for the City of Visalia is Rebecca Keenan. Omni-Means is designing the improvements. Cost for design approved by the City Council is $279,627.
The project is funded by Tulare County Measure R Local funds, Local Transportation Development funds, and the Gas Tax fund.
The project is estimated to cost $3.1 million. Railroad crossing improvements and right-of-way acquisitions involved have the potential to significantly affect project costs. Cost estimates will be refined throughout the design stages, as the project progresses.
