The first of three segments at Fulton Mall were opened for automobile traffic on Tuesday, September 19. These roads haven’t been open to automobile traffic for 50 years. The barricades were taken down between Tuolumne and Fresno streets, a two-block stretch, for the first segment. The segment between Inyo and Tulare streets also opened to traffic.
Fulton Street, between Tuolumne and Inyo streets, closed to automobile traffic in 1964 to make a pedestrian-only shopping mall. In March 2016 the $20 million restoration project began to restore Fulton Mall to have automobile traffic.
This project includes new street signs and the relocation of the civic art that was installed on the Fulton Mall. The art pieces on the Tuolumne to Fresno segment have mostly been finished but there are a few that remain in other segments.
There are two places to see local bands play, the Kern Plaza and the Mariposa Plaza.
The lineup for the Kern Plaza include:
