Document Description
The proposed project would widen and rehabilitate an approximately 0.5-mile segment of Villa/Minnewawa Avenue from Herndon Avenue to Alluvial Avenue in the City of Clovis (City). The existing 0.5-mile project segment has multiple lane configurations and the project would widen the roadway to provide two travel lanes consistently in each direction along the segment. Southbound Minnewawa Avenue consists of two travel lanes north of the project site and transitions to one lane at the intersection of Minnewawa Avenue and Alluvial Avenue. Within the project segment, the southbound travel lane on Villa/Minnewawa Avenue widens to two lanes at Fir Avenue, approximately 350 feet north of Herndon Avenue, and remains two travel lanes south of Herndon Avenue. The project would widen the southbound lanes between Alluvial and Fir from one to two lanes, eliminating the delay and congestion that occurs from the transition to one lane at the intersection of Minnewawa Avenue and Alluvial Avenue.
