The Cartmill interchange will expand the Cartmill street to six lanes and prepare the interchange for future development in the area, and better connect the area to the Outlet malls nearby. The project is funded by Tulare City’s proposition 1B ($7 million) and Tulare County’s Measure R ($15.3 million), and will be designed by OMNI-MEANS in Visalia. Projected completion date is November of 2015.
The current trail grade separation will allow pedestrians, bikes, and horses on the path to go over the railroad tracks where the trail currently gets interrupted. The long term vision for the Santa Fe Trail is to ultimately connect it from Visalia to the City of Tulare.
TCAG invites the public to get involved in the planning process for Walk ‘n Bike Tulare County. The opportunities will be announced here, and will include a public workshop, community survey, and hearings and meetings open to the public. Public involvement will begin in earnest in July 2015.

On April 17th the transit center was completed. “The new Transit Center makes it convenient to reach educational opportunities at Reedley College and the Vocational Training Center, to go to medical appointments, work or shopping,” according to Blanca Beltran, Dinuba’s Public Works Director. It will improve downtown and aesthetics in the area as well. The center offers the following services: Transit Service, 1st time homebuyer program, housing rehabilitation program accepting utility payments, Cooling Center, Free Wi-Fi, & Park and Ride. The project had a price tag of $1.5 million funded by a combination of California Transportation Development Act and Proposition 1C funds.
