U.S. Highway 50 Pavement Rehabilitation Project


DESCRIPTION

This comprehensive corridor project will rehabilitate US 50 from I-5 Interchange (PM L0.6) to Watt Avenue Overcrossing (PM R5.3).

PROJECT BENEFITS

The purpose of this project is to replace the existing Portland Cement Concrete (PCC) pavement, reduce maintenance crew’s exposure to live traffic, and reduce maintenance expenditure. The project scope also includes the restoration of other roadway elements such as drainage, lighting, and pedestrian facilities. The existing Portland PCC pavement was built between 1967 and 1971 and has reached the end of its service life. It is deteriorated and has a poor ride quality that requires annual maintenance to repair and maintain. A recent pavement condition survey conveyed that there is severe slab cracking and faulting in the no. 3 and 4 lanes in both directions and minor slab cracking in the no.1 and 2 lanes in both directions.

The project also proposes to increase the deficient vertical clearance at seven Overcrossing structures in the project limits as identified in the District 3 Goods and Movement Study. This increased vertical clearance will reduce the frequency of “high load” hits, reduce maintenance worker exposure to traffic, and improve freight mobility in this corridor.

FUNDING BREAKDOWN

The project is being funded by the SHOPP’s Roadway Rehabilitation program. The total project cost for the long life pavement replacement, other highway asset upgrades and improving the vertical clearance at seven overcrossings is estimated at $324 million.
