Southbound State Route 99 Turner Road On-ramp

Project Description

Improve southbound Turner Road on-ramp entrance geometrics.


Project Benefits


Improve local circulation in the project area for vehicles, cyclist and pedestrians on the west side of SR 99 between Pioneer Drive and East Turner Road.


The segment of North Cherokee Lane from East Turner Road to Pioneer Drive is a southbound, one-way road.  The change from two-way traffic to one-way traffic at Pioneer Drive does not meet driver expectations for northbound Cherokee Lane traffic entering the system. Drivers are left to find a longer, indirect route between Pioneer Drive and East Turner Road in the northbound direction. Vehicles must either cut through the adjacent residential neighborhood to the west and past Lawrence Elementary School to go west and north (right on Calaveras Street, left on Stanislaus Street, right on Coloma Street) or head south on Cherokee Lane to East Lockeford Street, cross over SR 99 and go north (left) on Beckman Road to reach either East Turner Road or an on-ramp to northbound SR 99.

This segment of Cherokee Lane also lacks bicycle and pedestrian facilities in both directions.  Bicyclists and pedestrians must utilize the same longer, indirect routes as vehicles to reach East Turner Road going north or Pioneer Drive going south through a school zone.  These indirect routes are a minimum of one added mile per trip, causing higher vehicle miles traveled (VMT) which discourages alternative transportation modes and lowers air quality.
