All-Way Stop Coming To Giddings & Riggin

Updated 1.8.19

An all-way stop installation will be coming to the Giddings and Riggin intersection. But due to rain, the work has been rescheduled to take place on Friday, January 11th.

“After careful study, it was determined that the intersection of Giddings and Riggin met the criteria to have an all-way stop installed,” said Leslie Blair, Senior Civil Engineer, City of Visalia.

Scheduled to coincide with the holiday vacation of Visalia Unified School District, sign boards to notify motorists are up now, with the installation work taking place on Friday, January 11th.

“In order for an intersection to meet the requirements for an all-way stop, it must meet certain criteria, one being volume,” shared Blair. “With new development in the area, traffic has increased. The stop signs will serve as an interim measure as plans will be underway within six months to install a traffic control signal.”

No road closures will take place for the installation, but motorists are asked to be mindful of the upcoming change.
