San Joaquin/Alpine- 88 DRAINAGE SYSTEM PROJECT (10-0S740)

Purpose & Need: The purpose and need of this project is to replace drainage culverts at various locations in San Joaquin and Alpine counties that have exceeded their design life and deteriorated or failed. If the culverts are not replaced, undermining of the state highway may occur and the highway may be compromised.

Scope of Work (Lockeford location only):  Replace trunk-lines on both sides of the highway and one lateral with 24-inch pipes. Route the runoff into a new basin at State Route 88/Locke Rd with an overflow pipe connecting to the County pipe on Fillmore St. Add low-maintenance landscape in the basin area and replace dikes. 

 

Project Funding

The project is fully funded in the State Highway Operation and Protection Program (SHOPP) for $8.3 million.

Total Support: $2.9 million     

Right-of-Way Capital: $1.3 million        

Construction Capital: $4.1 million

 

Project Status & Schedule

Status:  100% design is complete. Construction of the project is scheduled to begin in May 2022.

San Joaquin-88 PAVEMENT ANCHOR PROJECT (10-1M590)

Purpose & Need: The purpose of this project is to repair the roadway pavement to increase pavement life and ride quality, comply with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements for pedestrians, improve highway operations, and install traffic management system. The 2015 pavement condition survey report has identified the need to repair deteriorated pavement within the project limits. There is also a need to address ADA deficiency in Lockeford, in addition to addressing need of traffic management and improving traffic operations within project limits.

Scope of Work:  The project is in San Joaquin County from 0.2 mile north of Comstock Rd near Waterloo to 0.1 mile east of Disch Rd near Lockeford.  The proposed work includes the following: grind and overlay existing pavement, upgrade existing and construct new sidewalks and ADA curb ramps, widen pavement to improve Federal Surface Transportation Assistance Act (STAA) turning radius at Henry Ln and Kettleman Ln intersections, widen pavement to increase length of existing acceleration lane at State Route 12/88 intersection on the eastbound right merge lane, install traffic management system elements, construct maintenance vehicle pullouts, upgrade roadside signs, add bike lanes, improve/address drainage issues as needed, and construct drainage basin.

OTHER UPDATES

Restriping at State Route 88/Locke Rd Intersection

To address traffic operational concerns at the State Route 88/Locke Rd intersection, restriping work described below is planned for January 2021, pending weather and availability of equipment & crew.

  • The re-striping modification will accommodate truck-turning radius and provide a buffer zone (striped island) on Locke Rd at the stop limit line. This will provide additional space between eastbound and westbound Locke Rd so southbound SR 88 right-turn traffic can stay in its own lane when making a turn without encroaching onto the opposing lane on Locke Rd.

  • New channelizers will be installed as a countermeasure to reduce the right-turn speeding from southbound SR 88 to westbound Locke Rd.

Signs Installation

  • Installation of pedestrian signs for the crosswalk of Cotton St intersection was completed on 6/17/2020.

  • New speed limit signs were installed on 2/28/2020 on SR 88 between Blossom Court and View Lane.
  • Signal ahead sign and Yield to Pedestrian sign at Tully Rd/Elliot Rd intersection was installed on 11/15/2019.
  • Intersection Ahead signs were installed on 12/13/2019, east and west of the intersection of Locke Rd and SR 88.

  • Pedestrian Ahead sign was installed on 11/18/2019, east of the intersection of Locke Rd and SR 88 for westbound traffic.
