Stratford-Lemoore CAPM

Project Description

The project would preserve and resurface the existing lanes on State Route 41, including three ramps in Kings County near Stratford from Nevada Avenue (post mile 28.4) to the State Route 41/State Route 198 Separation Bridge (post mile R39.8). This project also proposes to repair and replace 12 culverts at various locations within the project limits. A Build Alternative and a No-Build Alternative are under consideration for this project. The total cost of the project is estimated to be $18,086,000. This Capital Preventative Maintenance project (known as a “CAPM” project, as noted in the project name) would be funded under the State Highway Operation and Protection Program.
