Santa Fe Roundabout

Project Description

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) proposes to build a four-legged, single-lane roundabout with a bypass on State Route 43 at its intersection with Santa Fe Way, Los Angeles Avenue, and Beech Avenue in the City of Shafter. The existing pavement within the intersection would be replaced with Type A Hot-Mix Asphalt pavement, and a separate Jointed Plain Concrete Pavement concrete truck apron would accommodate standard Surface Transportation Assistance Act trucks at the center of the roundabout.
