Document Description
The County of Tulare and the Cities of Visalia and Exeter propose to widen Avenue 280 from a 2 lane undivided roadway to a four/six lane divided road with a median. The widening would occur from the junction with SR 99 in Tulare County east to Mooney Blvd. in the City of Visalia, and from Santa Fe St. in the Visalia east to Orange Ave., with transitions to the existing 2 lane roadway completed by Filbert Rd. in Exeter, excluding the roadway segment through Farmersville. Intersection improvements at up to 21 roadway intersections with Avenue 280 would also be implemented. Improvements and right-of-way transitions at these intersections may occur for up to 700 ft north and/or south of Avneue 280. The project would also require utility relocation, right-of-way clearing, and culvert widening. The length of the project is 10.82 miles.
