City, County Team up to Finally Repair Forkner Avenue



Share with friends

North Forkner Avenue has long been in sad shape. In fact, it scores 18 out of 100 on the pavement condition index.

But because the road — like many locally — is under the purview of Fresno County on one side and the city of Fresno on the other, it’s been difficult to get leaders to agree on repairs.

The good news: County supervisor Steve Brandau and city councilmember Mike Karbassi have hashed out a deal in which Forker will be repaired with each branch of government contributing 50% of the costs.

The road will be closed to motorists from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily for about two weeks, beginning Monday, June 12.
