State Routes 51, 99 Fiber Optic Project
In Sacramento County on State Route (SR) 51, from the 50/99/51 separation to approximately 0.1 mile south of Fort Sutter Viaduct; also on SR 99 from Grant Line OC to Junction 50/51. Install fiber optic communication systems. (Sac-99 PM 10.0/R24.3; Sac-51 PM 0.0/0.13)
PURPOSE: The purpose of this project is to improve transportation communication performance through installation of a fiber optic system.
NEED: There is a need to upgrade the performance and maintenance requirements of the existing communication system for the Regional Transportation Management Center (RTMC) by installing a system with lower operational costs and improved communication speeds.
The Project Approval and Environmental Document (PA&ED) support component was programmed at the August 2017 CTC meeting from the State Highway Operation and Protection Program (SHOPP). Design, Right of Way and Construction components are expected to be funded from California SB1's Trade Corridor Enhancement Program.
