Document Description
The Atwater-Merced Expressway (AME) is a proposed 7-mile-long expressway located in the northeast portion of Merced County. The AME would provide motor-vehicle travel between State Route (SR) 59 at Bellevue Road and SR 140 at Gurr Road providing an alternative route to existing SR 59 which travels through downtown Merced. The AME project would be a new four-lane divided access-controlled expressway with limited cloverleaf style interchanges with major roadways (SR 99 and Santa Fe Drive) and signal-controlled intersections with local roads. The project would include the realignment of some existing roads, including a portion of SR 99, and the extension of some local roads to connect with the new expressway.
