Route 99 Corridor Enhancement Master Plan - Fresno, CA 1-866-740-9230

Mission Statement

To produce a Route 99 Corridor Enhancement Master Plan which guides public and private sector decisions; provides a corridor identity; lays out specific improvement approaches and themes; is collaborative with other Route 99 plans and programs; and has wide community and public involvement which results in ownership of the plan by all.

Goals and Objectives

From Bakersfield to Lodi , Route 99 traverses through the counties of Kern, Tulare , Fresno , Madera , Merced , Stanislaus and San Joaquin. Along this corridor, the appearances of Route 99 changes from county to county, with varying styles of slope paving, median treatments, soundwalls, retaining walls and landscaping.

Caltrans and local communities are working together to develop a master plan to improve the Route 99 corridor. The Route 99 Corridor Master Plan will strengthen community identity, unify freeway improvements and develop design concepts that ties communities throughout the corridor together and foster a valley-wide identity. In addition to dealing with aesthetic concerns, the document will address capacity needs as increased regional and interregional traffic puts more stress on the corridor.

As a major route in the most productive agricultural region in the world, Route 99 is critical to the economic vitality of the state. Senate Concurrent Resolution 17 (SCR17), authored by former Senator Jim Costa, recognizes this and directs Caltrans to identify transportation-related needs along the corridor that will relieve congestion and improve the movement of goods, enhancing economic development of the San Joaquin Valley.

The Route 99 Corridor Enhancement Master Plan is a formal effort to promote unity on Route 99 and determine current and future transportation-related needs up and down the corridor. The corridor as defined for the Route 99 Corridor Enhancement Master Plan consists of two elements. The first element is the area under the direct control of Caltrans, including the ultimate right-of-way for Route 99. The second element encompasses the immediate view shed for the right-of-way and involves a collaborative planning effort between Caltrans and the local planning agencies. The Master Plan is intended to cover the seven counties mentioned above, but will also be coordinated with other planning efforts to improve Route 99 from Bakersfield to Sacramento.

By looking at this big picture, the Route 99 Corridor Enhancement Master Plan will create a lasting legacy that promotes economic opportunity and a better quality of life for all of the communities along the corridor.

Project Overview

Caltrans and local communities have worked together to develop a master plan to improve the Route 99 corridor. The Route 99 Corridor Enhancement Master Plan will strengthen community identity, unify freeway improvements, and develop design concepts that tie communities through the San Joaquin Valley together and foster a valley-wide identity.

In addition to dealing with aesthetic concerns, the document will address capacity needs as increased regional and interregional traffic puts more stress on the corridor.

The development of the Route 99 Corridor Enhancement Master Plan will guide public and private sector decisions in the development of the 99 Corridor by setting specific improvement approaches and themes.

However, Caltrans is looking for public and community involvement, which results in ownership of the plan by everyone.
