UPDATE: October 6, 2020
#TrafficAlert 10/7/20 through 10/13/20. As part of the ongoing construction of the new roundabout at Temperance and Owens Mountain, the southern portion of the roundabout will be closed to traffic for continued installation of the median and pavement. Access to the businesses on the east side of the roundabout is open from the south. U-turns from SB Temperance are allowed at Fir. Please do not make U-turns in front of the fire station or at the 168 ramps as those are illegal. Thank you for your patience – the construction of the roundabout project is about 80% complete.
For more guidance and instructional videos on how to use a roundabout, see the FAQ “How do I Drive a Roundabout?” on the City of Clovis website https://cityofclovis.com/planning-and-develo…/engineering/…/
Temperance Roundabout Project
On March 9th, construction began on a project to replace the existing signalized intersection at Temperance and Alluvial with a multi-lane roundabout. The first phase of construction will require Alluvial to be closed to through traffic west of Temperance. Southbound traffic on Temperance will be redirected to the northbound side of the roadway. The intersection of Temperance and Alluvial will function as a three way stop during this first phase of construction.
All businesses in the area will remain open and accessible throughout the project.
Replacing the signalized intersection with a roundabout will eliminate the operational delay from the signal.
The intersection of Alluvial Avenue/Owens Mountain Parkway and N. Temperance Avenue is approximately 375 feet north of the State Highway System; operations of the intersection can impact the Temperance Avenue interchange on State Route 168 due to the close spacing and the expected traffic.
Caltrans has expressed concerns that queues on the northbound approach to the signalized intersection of Temperance and Alluvial will block the westbound off ramp from State Route 168 in the future, primarily as a result traffic expected to be a generated by the Research and Technology Business Park and other planned land uses in the area.
With the installation of a roundabout, the potential of operational issues is expected to be significantly lessened.
Anticipated completion of the project is winter of 2020. The project is being funded by a federal grant from the Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement Program (CMAQ), which is administered by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA).
