Document Description
Caltrans proposes to realign and widen SR 180 from 0.7 miles east of Smith Avenue (R74.1) to 0.7 miles east of Frankwood Avenue (R78.6) near the communities of Centerville and Minkler in eastern Fresno County. The project would widen the existing 2-lane conventional highway to a 4-lane divided expressway. The project would connect with the previously constructed Kings Canyon Expressway, Segment 2 west of Smith Avenue (FRE180-EA06-34252). The purpose of the project is to improve continuity, safety, and capacity along SR180 to, and from Fresno and areas east. The project includes utility and private access easements, frontage roads, and construction of 8 waterways crossings, including a new bridge at the Kings River. The project result in utility relocation, residential displacement, and proposes mitigation for impacts to natural resources.
