Los Banos State Route 152 Pavement Anchor

Project Description

This project proposes to replace existing deteriorated pavement, improve the overall ride quality, and reduce immediate maintenance needs. This project also proposes to upgrade pedestrian facilities to current Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards, and upgrade a bike route, Transportation Management System (TMS) elements, drainage facilities, guardrails, and roadway signs. The project limits are on State Route (SR) 152 in Merced County in and near Los Banos from 0.3 miles west of Badger Flat Road to 0.2 miles east of San Luis Street.


Project Benefits


The purpose of this project is to improve overall pavement condition, ride quality, and minimize maintenance needs. 


The current pavement condition exhibits signs of distress that requires an elevated level of maintenance efforts. Other roadway assets along the corridor are not up to the current standards and need to be addressed.


Funding Source

The project is programmed in the 2022 State Highway Operations and Protection Program (SHOPP) with funding from the Pavement Preservation Program.
