Morning Drive 3R Rehabilitation

Project Description

Description: The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) proposes to rehabilitate and bring to current standards the existing roadway on State Route 184, in Kern County, between 0.1 mile north of Edison Highway at post mile 8.5 and 0.1 mile north of Chase Avenue at post mile 11.6. Complete Streets elements would be incorporated, including Americans with Disabilities Act-compliant sidewalks, curb ramps, and continuous bike lanes in both directions, within the project limits.

Project Benefits


The purpose of this project is to restore the facility to a state of good repair so that the roadway is in a condition that only requires minimal maintenance expenditures. Also, the project proposes to replace and upgrade other highway elements within the project limits that are failing, worn out or functionally obsolete.


The frequency of repairs required is surpassing the availability of State maintenance forces and has resulted in increased costs of maintaining State Route 184 within the project limits. At various locations, the existing shoulder widths are not to current standards. Also, existing sidewalks and curb ramps are not to current standards. Pedestrian and bicyclist accessibility are not continuous within the project limits.

Title VI Information

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) assures that no person shall, on the basis of race, color, or national origin, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be otherwise subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance, as required by Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended, the Civil Rights Restoration Act of 1987, and Federal Executive Order 12898 (Federal Actions to Address Environmental Justice in Minority Populations and Low-Income Populations).
