Los Banos 152 West I street Median
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The purpose of the project is to install raised median, to restrict left-turn movements and reinforce right-in and right-out turning movements to mitigate collisions, as the number of conflict points are reduced. Relocating the driveway will allow vehicles more time to access the pullout area reducing sudden turning movements resulting in rear end collisions. The need is to address several driveways within the influence area of the intersections along SR 152 corridor that creates conflict points and impacts the traffic flow of the mainline.
