Document Description
The City of Porterville proposes to reconstruct a portion of Villa Street between Olive and Henderson Avenues, approximately one mile in length, to provide safe, improved access to retail opportunities, job centers, housing and other facilities in the city. The reconstruction would include the widening of Villa Street to the standard width of 60 ft right of way; upgrading traffic signal equipment at the intersections at Putnam Avenue and Morton Avenue; replacement of the bridge over Porter Slough; installation of a box culvert at Porter Slough; and the extension of the existing pipe culvert at Porter Slough Ditch. The activities located near the slough would most likely require environmental permitting efforts associated with the crossing of Porter Slough. The reconstruction would also entail the installation of new concrete improvements where necessary along the one-mile stretch
