Interstate 5 Pavement Anchor Project

Project Description

This Pavement Anchor Project proposes to rehabilitate Interstate 5 (I-5) in and near the City of Stockton, San Joaquin County from Hammer Lane undercrossing (UC) (PM 32.5) to the Sacramento County line (PM 49.8).

The proposed scope of work incorporates 9 satellite assets that includes guardrail upgrade, bridge rail replacement, culvert replacement, operational improvements, sign replacements, Transportation Management System (TMS) elements, roadside safety improvements, lighting, and American with Disabilities Act (ADA) improvements.

The proposed pavement strategy is to replace the existing pavement with Continuously Reinforced Concrete Pavement (CRCP) and Joint Plain Concrete Pavement (JPCP) on the outside shoulder in both the northbound and southbound directions from Hammer Lane UC to Eight Mile Road UC. There are five bridges between Hammer Lane UC and Eight Mile Road UC. The approach slabs through this section will also be replaced. The pavement for the remainder of the project limits will be addressed with individual slab replacement using Rapid Strength Concrete (RSC) in various locations along I-5 with diamond grinding to meet smoothness requirements across all lanes in both the northbound and southbound directions from Eight Mile Rd (PM 35.5) to the Sacramento County line (PM 49.8). The ramps within the project limits are proposed to be cold planed 0.25 feet and overlaid with 0.25 feet HMA.
