Assunto:  will and going to in the same sentence
 
Mensagem:  I will be going to visit her this Monday.

Three obvious alternatives are:
I will be visiting her this Monday.
I am going to visit her this Monday.
I will visit her this Monday.

I believe  we can agree they all mean the same.  However, in your sentence, I am not hearing "ir + infinitivo".  I am hearing that you will be going to a location where the visit will take place.  I am hearing:

I will be going (to the hospital) to visit her this Monday.
I will be going (to New York) to visit her this Monday.

What are you hearing?
