Projects

Kings Canyon Expressway Segment 2 Project Logo

State Route 99 - Avenue 12 Interchange
The purpose of this project is to make operational improvements to the State Route 99 and Avenue 12 Interchange within Madera County in order to upgrade the existing interchange.   These improvements will improve safety and accommodate future traffic demands on this interchange. 


Kings Canyon Expressway Segment 2 Project Logo

State Route 180 East - Kings Canyon Expressway - Segment 2
This 2.7 mile segment will replace the existing two-lane conventional highway to a new 4-lane Expressway extending from just west of Quality Avenue to just west of Smith Road near the community of Centerville. This new expressway will facilitate improved traffic flow within this urban area and continues the extension eastward and serves as the gateway to Kings Canyon/Sequoia National Parks. State Route (SR) 180 not only links Fresno counties eastern communities and National Park areas with vital regional services, but also serves as the primary agricultural goods movement corridor for eastern Fresno County. This expressway is of growing importance for commuters from the surrounding rural areas and neighboring communities and will improve congestion along local streets, reduce travel time and increase motorist safety.

SR 99 San Joaquin River Logo

State Route 99 San Joaquin River Six-Lane Project
The purpose of this project is to improve the operational characteristics of a 2.9 mile segment of State Route 99 by reducing congestion and delays while improving vehicle traffic flow from just south of Grantland Avenue in Fresno County near the City of Fresno to just north of Avenue 7 in Madera County.

State Route 99, within the project limits, is a four-lane divided freeway. This project will ease congestion, improve mobility, decrease commute times and enhance safety along this portion of State Route 99 by expanding the capacity.

Tulare To Goshen Logo

State Route 99 Tulare to Goshen Widening Project
This capacity increasing project proposes to improve mobility and reliability and reduce congestion by widening State Route 99 to add lanes. The project continues the objective of widening all of Route 99 to a minimum of a six-lane freeway throughout the San Joaquin Valley. This project will facilitate goods movement and reduce delays. This project will also improve connectivity by continuing the extension of a six-lane freeway south through northern Tulare County for an additional 4 miles. Reducing congestion at this project location will improve safety.


24th Street Improvement Project Logo

24th Street Improvement Project
The project proposes to improve State Route 58 (Rosedale Highway) and State Route 178 (24th Street) from the southbound State Route 99 ramp intersection to 0.2 miles east of M Street. The project may include improvements for a SR 99 northbound auxiliary lane for the Rosedale Highway exit. The project would widen 24th Street to accommodate an additional lane in each direction, improve the SR 99 southbound on-ramp, construct a northbound auxiliary lane along SR 99 south of 24th Street, make improvements to all approaches at the Oak Street/24th Street intersection, and add one lane on 23rd Street and 24th Street. The project also proposes to construct sound walls in specific areas, modify the “S” curve between C and Drake Streets, and add concrete medians to restrict turn movements to improve operations and safety.

State Route 180 Westside Expressway Route Adoption

State Route 180 Westside Expressway Route Adoption
The Department of Transportation (Caltrans) is proposing that the California Transportation Commission adopt a new segment of State Route 180, from Interstate 5 to the end of the freeway portion of State Route 180, near Valentine in the city of Fresno. Caltrans would recommend the alternative determined to offer the most appropriate location for an ultimate four-lane expressway for State Route 180 to the commission following public and resource agency review of the route adoption study. The formal approval of the extension of State Route 180 would enable Caltrans, in cooperation with local governments, to plan for future transportation projects needed within the corridor.

Kings Canyon Expressway project

State Route 180 East - Kings Canyon Expressway
This project proposes to construct the new 4-lane Kings Canyon Expressway from just east of Temperance Avenue to Quality Avenue on a 6-lane right of way alignment. This segment will complete over 6 miles of NEW Expressway on SR180 that will safely transport local goods, daily commuters and Valley tourists traveling throughout Fresno County. With the extension of segments beyond this 4-lane expressway in the near future, this route will continue to be improved eastward and serves as the gateway to Kings Canyon/Sequoia National Parks.

Centennial Corridor Project

Centennial Corridor Project - Bakersfield
Extending State Route 58 westward beyond State Route 99 is a concept which has been studied repeatedly. In the past decade two studies were completed – the 1991 Tier 1 SR 58 Route Adoption and the Bakersfield System Study. During both studies opposition to a Westside Parkway Connection resulted in the selection of alternatives that were more expensive and less practical. Because of limited funding none of the selected alternatives moved beyond the conceptual study. Read more about the Centennial Corridor Project...
