Project Description

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) is proposing a roadway rehabilitation project on State Route 99 from 0.2 mile south of the El Dorado Street Overcrossing to the Clinton Avenue Overcrossing (post miles 21.2 to 24.4) in Fresno County. The project is proposing to replace the existing pavement with Continuously Reinforced Concrete Pavement and build a 46-foot median. The proposed work would also include replacing the El Dorado Street (Number 42 0184), Belmont Avenue (Number 42 0186), and Olive Avenue (Number 42 0187) Overcrossings as well as the Kerman Branch (Number 42 0190) Underpass railroad structure, widening the Nielsen Avenue (Number 42 0188) and McKinley Avenue (Number 42 0181) Undercrossings, and removing the Teilman Avenue (Number 42 0189) Overcrossing. Additionally, the project would include building auxiliary lanes, retaining walls, and pumping plants.

Project Benefits


The purpose of this project is to restore the facility to a state of good repair so that maintenance exposure and expenditures are minimized. Bringing the existing roadway features to standard such as vertical clearances and shoulder widths will be considered. The project will consider pavement rehabilitation strategies, including consistency with nearby corridor pavement, long-term corridor plan, constructability, traffic handling during construction, and long-term cost-effectiveness.


The existing pavement within the project limits is deteriorating, cracking, and settling so much that pavement rehabilitation is needed.
