Delano 3R Rehabilitation Project


Project Description

The project proposes to resurface, restore, and rehabilitate about 1.3 miles on State Route 155 in the City of Delano, from Fremont Street to 0.13 mile west of Browning Road. A Build Alternative and a No-Build Alternative are under consideration for the project. The total cost of the project is estimated to be $16,740,000. This resurfacing, restoration, and rehabilitation project (known as a “3R” project, as noted in the project name) would be funded under the State Highway Operation and Protection Program.

Project Benefits


The purpose of the project is to:

  • Rehabilitate the roadway to a state of good repair
  • Improve accessibility for pedestrians and bicyclists


The condition of the pavement within the project limits has deteriorated due to storm damage and the high volume of large-truck traffic. These circumstances have resulted in increased costs to maintain the existing pavement. Restoring the roadway to a state of good repair would minimize maintenance costs and result in smoother pavement surfaces that could lead to improved vehicle operations, reduced emissions, increased service life of the pavement, and reduced energy consumption.

Improvements for pedestrians and bicyclists include constructing or upgrading Americans with Disabilities Act-compliant curb ramps, sidewalks, driveways, and a continuous bike lane in both directions of State Route 155. Additional bike lanes and sidewalks would encourage other modes of travel and could result in reduced vehicle miles traveled, which would offset energy usage. Installing Americans with Disabilities Act-compliant curb ramps would provide an accessible route that people with disabilities can use to safely transition from the roadway to the curbed sidewalk.
