NOP - Notice of Preparation of a Draft EIR
Document Description
The project proposes to realign State Route 65 from Hermosa Avenue near the City of Lindsay, to State Route 198 northeast of the City of Exeter. The realignment would build a two-lane expressway on a four-lane right of way approximately 9.2 miles in length. All build alternatives include a 0.51 mi portion of State Route 245. The purpose of the project is to provide route continuity by providing a more direct route for interregional traffic on State Route 65; provide congestion relief by increasing traffic capacity and improving traffic flow to an interregional transportation system; and improve safety and operation of State Route 65. There are two build alternatives and a no-build alternative under consideration.
