Document Description
The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) proposes to widen the south side of State Route 180 by 15 feet and install a two-way left-turn lane between 0.4 mile east of George Smith Road and Elwood Road in Squaw Valley in Fresno County. The project would be from post mile 89.6 to post mile 90.7. A build alternative and a no-build (no-action) alternative are being considered. Culverts in the project limits would also be extended on the south side to accommodate the widening. Other work would include upgrading drainage systems through the project limits, repaving existing driveway connections to the southern side of State Route 180, and installing one traffic monitoring station system. Signs within the project limits may need to be relocated. Oak tree and vegetation removal would be required, and construction would occur at night. The project would occur within the existing right-of-way. The purpose of the project is to improve safety and reduce collisions on State Route 180 in Squaw Valley.
