Document Description
This project will enhance vehicular circulation and pedestrian safety by installing a One-Way Stop sign at the currently uncontrolled "T" intersections of Coyote Court (LR72C) at Avenue 308 and Avenue 310, and Avenue 305 at Road 72, and installing an All-Way Stop on Avenue 308 at Road 72, which is currently controlled with Stops for north and southbound traffic only, in the unincorporated community of Goshen, CA. In response to safety concerns at these intersections, the Tulare County Resource Management Agency (RMA) conducted an investigation. To improve the vehicular circulation and pedestrian safety, the Traffic Operations Division determined that these intersections meet the requirements of Sections 28.04 Right of Way at Intersections and 2B.07 Multi-Way Stop Applications of the California Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (CA MUTCD), and is consistent with the California Vehicle Code (CVC), Section 22450(c), which states in part that "a local authority may adopt rules and regulations by ordinance or resolution providing for the placement ofa stop sign at any location on a highway under its jurisdiction where the stop sign would enhance traffic safety".
