Detours around the intersection of Fulkerth Road and N. Golden State Boulevard will be up for at least another month, as crews continue to work on improvements to the roadway and railroad crossing.

The intersection has been closed since July 31 and work was expected to be completed by mid-September. Director of Development Services/City Engineer Mike Pitcock told the Turlock City Council on Tuesday that a delay in getting the utilities undergrounded has pushed the project’s expected completion date to mid-October.

The project will include providing dual left turn lanes from all directions, bike lanes and sidewalk, installation of a new traffic signal system, including advanced railroad preemption capabilities, to allow adequate time for vehicles to safely clear the railroad grade crossing in the event of an approaching train, intersection lighting improvements, pavement rehabilitation and new traffic striping.
