State Route 43 Enos Lane CAPM and ADA Ramps Project
Project Description (06-0U100)
Caltrans proposes to resurface the pavement on State Route 43 from State Route 119 to State Route 58 (0.30 mile south of Noriega Avenue) and on State Route 119 from State Route 43 to the State Route 119/Interstate 5 separation. Curb ramps will be updated to current standards. Right of way will be required for the curb ramp at post mile 8.11. Shoulder backing will be placed along the State Route 43 roadway. Approach guardrails will be replaced at the Kern River Bridge and Goose Lake Slough Bridge. Shoulder backing will be applied to both sides of the State Route 119 roadway. Approach guardrails will be replaced at the State Route 119/Interstate 5 separation. The guardrails at the culvert headwalls on State Route 119 will be updated to current standards.
The purpose of the project is to preserve the existing lanes of asphalt concrete pavement within the project limits of these undivided segments of State Route 43 and State Route 119 in Kern County and extend the service life of the pavement. The project will also improve riding quality and reduce maintenance costs.
State Route 43 and State Route 119 are major arterials in Kern County and carry a high percentage of truck traffic. The pavement within the project limits is experiencing a considerable amount of cracking and rutting, which requires ongoing maintenance. Non-compliant curb ramps within the project limits also need to conform to the Design Information Bulletin 82 (DIB 82-05) ldquo;Pedestrian Accessibility Guidelines for Highway Projects and comply with current Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards.
