Sidewalks will soon connect kids to school in Woodville

County goes out to bid on sidewalks from rural town’s major intersection to elementary school

@TheSunGazette

WOODVILLE – Students at a rural Tulare County school will soon be able to walk to school on sidewalks instead of the dirt shoulder of one of the community’s busiest roadways. 

At its Feb. 26 meeting, the Tulare County Board of Supervisors unanimously voted to go out to bid for sidewalks in Woodville, a farm labor community south of Farmersville. 

The project proposes to improve sidewalk facilities along the Road 168 corridor between Avenue 168 and the Woodville Elementary School. As part of installing sidewalks, the project will also install curbs, gutters, asphalt paveouts, wheelchair ramps, new pedestrian signs, and pavement markings.

Most of the construction will be done by Community Services Employment Training (CSET), which will build approximately 2,075 square feet of sidewalk for the project.

The sidewalk project is estimated to cost $877,000 and will be paid for by CalTrans’ Active Transportation Program (ATP). The project was not set to receive funding until this fall but was moved up the list after an influx of funding through SB 1, the gas tax. 

Construction is anticipated to begin in summer of 2019.
