Present Land Use
Louise Avenue is classified as an arterial roadway within the City of Lathrop General Plan (General Plan). The General Plan Land Use Element designates the land to the north of the project site as LD (Low Density Residential), MD (Medium Density residential), NC (Neighborhood Commercial), SC (Specialty Commercial), and LI (Light Industrial). The land to the south is designated as GI (General Industrial), SC (Specialty Commercial), and LI (Light Industrial). According to the City of Lathrop Zoning Map, the proposed project is south of the land zoned GI (General Industrial) and LI (Limited Industrial).

Document Description
The project proposes to widen Louise Avenue by one lane in each direction from its intersection with Fifth Street, east to the City limits at the Union Pacific Railroad crossing. The proposed project would widen the subject portion of Louise Avenue from two to four lanes consistent with the planned ultimate geometric design adopted by the City of Lathrop. The proposal would improve vehicular flow along Louise Avenue between Lathrop and Manteca. The proposed roadway improvements will generally consist of widening the existing roadway to its ultimate General Plan classification cross-section as a four-lane section immediately west of Fifth Street. The proposed curb-to-curb width is approximately 76 feet that would provide for a 12-foot raised center median, four 12-foot travel lanes, and Class II 8-foot bicycle lanes (including 2-foot gutters) throughout the length of the project. Sidewalk widths would be 10 feet. The improvements would not change the existing horizontal or vertical profile of Louise Avenue. The widening of this segment will increase the roadway's capacity as compared to existing conditions in accordance with the City's General Plan Circulation Element. Roadway widening will generally require right-of-way acquisition of approximately 18 feet on either side of Louise Avenue to accommodate the additional travel lanes, raised median, bicycle lanes, curbs, gutter, and sidewalks. It is anticipated that approximately 24 parcels will be impacted with project implementation.
