Fulkerth and Golden State Intersection Anticipated to Reopen by Thanksgiving, Black Friday TurlockCityNews.com
After being closed since Jul. 31, then delayed past mid-September to Nov. 1, and slated to reopen on Nov. 21, the Fulkerth Road and Golden State Boulevard Intersection will be opening just before Thanksgiving and Black Friday holiday shopping.

“The City of Turlock anticipates the Fulkerth and Golden State Intersection will open Wednesday night,” Turlock City Clerk Jennifer Land stated in a press release. “The City of Turlock appreciates the community's patience as we increased the safety and efficiency of this highly used intersection.”

The intersection will now have protected left hand turn lanes, safer railroad crossings, more efficient traffic flow, new bike lanes and sidewalks with ADA upgrades, and improved lighting.

Some businesses have reported losses due to the intersection being closed, while many drivers, bikers, and pedestrians have complained about the lack of the thoroughfare and railroad crossing going from east to west across Turlock - from residential to the freeway and shopping surround Wal-Mart.

Many worries as of lately have been regarding the major intersection and thoroughfares being closed as Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and the rest of the holiday shopping season is kicking off.

“Holiday travel is always challenging, however, not nearly as much in Turlock,” stated Councilwoman and Economic Development Committee Chair Amy Bublak. “Come shop at our local businesses now that our major intersections are all open.”

Police Chief Nino Amirfar can't deal with the homeless downtown because Mayor Soiseth won't let him. We all suffer and lose business in the meantime.

When can we have our city back to the way it was and working?

Ha ha yeah right. This was supposed to be done a long time ago. Should have told them that if they don't get the job done by the timeline they said, then they don't get paid but still have to finish the job. That would keep them from dragging out...

Ha ha yeah right. This was supposed to be done a long time ago. Should have told them that if they don't get the job done by the timeline they said, then they don't get paid but still have to finish the job. That would keep them from dragging out the process, slacking off and wasting our tax dollars so they get more money.
