Newly Constructed Traffic Signal Will Be Activated Tuesday, October 18, 2022


VISALIA, CA – The activation of a newly constructed traffic signal in northwest Visalia, at the intersection of Plaza Drive and Kibler Avenue (also known as Avenue 320), will begin Tuesday, October 18, 2022.


“Once this traffic signal is turned on, it will operate in red flash for two days,” shares Eric Bons, Senior Civil Engineer. “The signalized intersection will then be placed into normal, full functioning operation on Thursday, October 20, 2022.”


While the traffic signal is in red flash, the intersection will operate as an all-way stop intersection.  Motorists are encouraged to use caution when traversing the intersection while the public is becoming accustomed to the change in traffic control and vehicle pattern.
