50+ Projects Close Out 2017
Did you know that the City of Visalia has over 50 active projects going on that include road, sidewalk and ramp construction and rehab, storm drain and basin work, traffic signal installation and more?
Community Development Director Nick Mascia recently provided the City Council with an update on the multiple Capital Improvement Program (CIP) occurring within the City.
Commonly referred to as CIP projects, these are unique construction projects that provide improvements or additions and enhance the overall quality of life in the City by improving the physical structures, systems, and facilities that provide services to the community. CIP projects benefit Visalians today and for decades to come.
What's in the works?
The Modoc Ditch Trail from St. Johns River to Court is currently being constructed, while the Jennings Ditch Trail is also being constructed and will run from N. Burke Street, behind the new Visalia Emergency Communications Center (VECC), in front of Jennings Ditch and end at E. Goshen Ave.
The Visalia Emergency Communications Center is complete, with staff ranging from Fire Administration to Police Dispatch getting comfortable in their new home.
In the planning stages and coming soon is:
- Street rehabilitation to Houston, Acequia and Ben Maddox
- Intersection improvements at Demaree and Goshen
- Traffic signals at County Center and Houston and at Mooney and Riggin
- Fiber installation that connects traffic signals at Murray, Giddings and Main
