Jaye Street/Montgomery Avenue Roundabout in Porterville Completed

The city of Porterville was experiencing traffic problems near the intersection of Jaye Street and Highway 190. Left-turn egress movements from a corner store and highway frontage road were prohibited due to intersection spacing, and vehicle stacking at the signal (including semi-trucks from a nearby distribution center) added to the problem.  Drivers ignored the signs prohibiting left-turn movements, which were intended to improve safety and operations, and made illegal movements to reach their desired business service locations.This resulted in increased police enforcement, which led to complaints from local business owners and motorists who regularly travel the adjacent street system.  The solution was a multi-lane roundabout which was recently completed.   The purpose of the project was to improve traffic circulation, safety, and improve the aesthetics within the community. MJV and OMNI-MEANS helped with the project.
