State Route 180 Logo

State Route 180 Westside

State Route 180 (SR 180) is an east-west two-lane highway that now begins in Mendota in the west at State Route 33 (SR 33) and connects communities on the west side of Fresno County with the city of Fresno, Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks in the Sierra Nevada to the east. An approximate 20-mile gap exists between Interstate 5 (I-5) and the western limit of SR 180 at SR 33. A connection to I-5 remains a high priority of both regional agencies and local municipalities, including Fresno County.

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.
