Fix 5 Cascade Gateway
The Fix 5 Cascade Gateway project is part of a series of projects that are restoring Interstate 5 through parts of Redding and Shasta County. This project will have several improvements, the main one being the addition of a third lane in the median between Redding and the City of Shasta Lake. This will allow more room to merge traffic at the on and off ramps while helping to reduce merging conflicts at multiple state routes that intersect in this area. Auxiliary lanes between the SR-299 and SR-44 interchange ramps will provide a much smoother flow of traffic in the area over Hilltop Drive, a busy retail area in Redding. This project also includes improvements to drainage and stormwater treatment facilities. Guardrails, high-tension cable barriers and the median barrier will all be brought to current standards.
