Document Description
The City of Los Banos proposes to construct an approximately 6.5-mile-long, arterial road with a Class I multi-use path (project). The project is located in the City of Los Banos, in western Merced County. The project would include the extension of Pioneer Road to provide a local parallel route to State Route 152 (SR-152), the addition of traffic signals at five intersections, reconstruction of driveways, and a Class I multi-use trail. The project area would begin at a new signalized intersection on SR-152, approximately 1,700 feet east of the Merced College entrance and east of the Los Banos Creek. From this new intersection, a roadway would be constructed south to connect to an existing segment of Pioneer Road. Project improvements would continue east along the existing Pioneer Road, past SR-165. East of SR-165, Pioneer Road would be extended to connect with the existing Ward Road. The project improvements would continue north along Ward Road ending at the existing SR-152/Ward Road signalized intersection.
