Gustine Roundabout

Project Description

Construct a single lane roundabout at the intersection of 4th Street and 6th Avenue, and realign Railroad Avenue, in the City of Gustine.

The construction of a single-lane roundabout at the intersection of 4th Street and 6th Avenue will accommodate a vehicle design speed of approximately 25 miles per hour and will accommodate Surface Transportation Assistance Act (STAA) sized truck movements. In addition, construction of the roundabout and the realignment of South Avenue and Railroad Avenue will eliminate 4 stop signs: 2 on State Route 33/140 and 2 at Railroad Avenue. Elimination of the stop signs improves traffic flow through this area.

 

Purpose and Need

The purpose of this project is to improve traffic movements and traffic flow through the 4th Street and 6th Avenue intersection on State Route 33/140 by constructing a roundabout and realigning Railroad Avenue to intersect with the 4th Street and 6th Avenue intersection. These improvements will improve intersection operations, reduce congestion, and enhance safety at this location.

The proposed project will focus on emissions reduction and air quality improvements. At the 4th Street and 6th Avenue intersection motorists often experience confusion navigating their way through this intersection.

 

Funding Source
