A new traffic signal will soon be installed at one of Turlock’s most troublesome intersections.
Work starts Today on a project to fully signalize the intersection of Colorado and Monte Vista Avenues, Turlock City Engineer Mike Pitcock confirmed. The intersection is currently a four-way stop.
“It’s much-needed,” Pitcock said.
The project will begin Today with the demolition of existing landscaping in the construction area.
After that, work is expected to halt for roughly a month. Utilities will come in to move services out of the way of the expanded intersection.
Then, toward the beginning of May, the contractor will return to complete work on the new signal. In addition to the signal, new curbs, gutters, and sidewalks will be installed, and a portion of Colorado Avenue will be reconstructed.
