Project Benefits

Purpose

The purpose of the project is to repair the roadway pavement, comply with Americans with Disabilities Act requirements, and address nonstandard features.

Need

The 2015 Pavement Condition Survey Report identified the need to repair deteriorated pavement along State Route 88 within the project limits. Additionally, there is a need to address Americans with Disabilities Act deficiencies along the route in Lockeford; several of the pedestrian crossings do not meet current standards. There is also a need to address nonstandard features within the project limits, such as transportation management system elements and updated signs that no longer meet current Caltrans standards.

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

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.
