Document Description
The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) proposes to widen State Route 99 in the City of Tulare from just south of Avenue 200 Overcrossing to just north of Prosperity Avenue Overcrossing (post miles 25.4/30.6). One lane would be constructed in each direction in the existing freeway median to create a six-lane freeway, divided by a concrete median barrier. The existing lanes, shoulders, and ramps would be rehabilitated. In addition, the existing Paige Avenue Interchange would be reconstructed. The Paige Avenue Overcrossing would be replaced with a wider structure to add one lane in each direction and a pedestrian/bicycle shared path.
