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.
