Special recognition will also be made in memory of former employee Roger Kenneth Fall. The majority of his 30 year career with the City of Turlock was spent managing traffic and transit-related services in a variety of areas, including bidding and procurement, contract administration, grant management, and coordination with regional entities. Throughout his career he was a tireless advocate for transportation needs for Turlock citizens, with a particular sensitivity to transit dependent individuals with no other viable transportation options. He was instrumental in the vision to establish a central transit center in Turlock, where it resides today, positioning the City to better meet the needs of future generations of passengers.
All site and building improvements were constructed under City Project No. 12-60. Finished improvements will include:
Funding for the project was comprised entirely of transit-specific funding, including Federal Transit Administration (FTA) Section 5307 and 5339 funds, California Proposition 1B funds, as well as Local Transportation Funds. No General Fund monies were used on the project. Total construction costs are expected to be less than the established budget of $5,814,280. Funding is also available for ongoing maintenance and operational costs, including on-site security services.
The Roger K. Fall Transit Center is located at 1418 N. Golden State Blvd. at the intersection of N. Golden State Blvd. and Hawkeye Ave. in Turlock. Parking will be available in the newly constructed parking lot on the northwest corner of the site. Attendees may access the event using local or regional fixed route transit lines as well. Light refreshments will be available. The event is open to all members of the public.
