I-5 Panoche Capital Preventative Maintenance

Project Description

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) proposes to resurface and rehabilitate the northbound and southbound lanes, shoulders, and on-ramps and off-ramps on Interstate 5 in Fresno County. The project would begin 1.9 miles north of the Three Rocks Road undercrossing to 0.2 mile south of the Panoche Road overcrossing at post mile 37.20 to 48.80.

Project Benefits


The purpose of this project is to extend the life of existing pavement on the northbound and southbound lanes on Interstate 5 beginning 1.9 miles north of the Three Rocks Road undercrossing to 0.2 mile south of the Panoche Road overcrossing.


There is a considerable amount of distress on the existing pavement, and cracking along and across the pavement has deteriorated the pavement to the extent that rehabilitation is needed. Due to previous overlays, hydraulic capacity of the existing asphalt concrete dikes within the project limits have been significantly reduced. Therefore, asphalt concrete dikes and asphalt concrete spillways will be removed and replaced.
