Interstate 5 Pavement Anchor Project

Project Description

This pavement anchor project aims to address multi-assets along the Interstate-5 corridor. The limits of this project are in and near the City of Stockton, in San Joaquin County from Hammer Lane Undercrossing (UC) to Sacramento County line.

This project proposes to replace the existing concrete pavement with continuously reinforced concrete pavement (CRCP) on the mainline and outside shoulder. The ramps are proposed to be replaced with jointed plain concrete pavement (JPCP). This anchor project will also address the following assets:

  • Bridge railing at Hammer Lane UC
  • Right of Way fencing
  • Maintenance vehicle pullouts, gore and slope paving
  • ADA infrastructure (curb ramps and accessible pedestrian signals)
  • Truck turning improvements at I-5/Peltier Rd and I-5/Thornton Rd
  • Lighting near ramps
  • Traffic Monitoring System elements (Changeable Message Signs, Closed Circuit Television, fiber optic, and vehicle detector stations)
  • Overhead sign structures and roadside signs
  • Guardrail

Two alternatives are proposed: The Viable Alternative (Build Alternative) and the No-Build Alternative.

Purpose and Need


The purpose of this is to extend the pavement service life, repair the infrastructure, and improve safety and mobility on Interstate 5 (I-5) in and near the City of Stockton to the Sacramento County line in San Joaquin County.


This project is needed because pavement ride quality is decreasing due to aging highway infrastructure approaching the end of its design life. Other assets have been identified to be non-compliant to current specifications and safety standards.
