  • Construct a third lane on northbound Highway 65 will be added from I-80 to Pleasant Grove Boulevard.
  • Widen and modify the northbound and southbound ramps at the Highway 65/ Galleria Boulevard/Stanford Ranch Interchange by adding protected left turn pockets and signalizing the northbound off-ramp.

PROJECT BENEFITS

Vehicles will back up on Interstate 80 where the westbound I-80 connector ramp converges with northbound State Highway 65. Recurring traffic demand exceeds the current design capacity of the Galleria Boulevard/Stanford Ranch Road/Highway 65 northbound ramps and adjacent transportation facilities, creating traffic operations, and safety issues. These issues result in high delays and wasted fuel, both of which will be exacerbated by traffic from future population and employment growth. This project will improve safety and ease congestion.
