Document Description
The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) proposes a project to improve the Highway Management System (HMS) on Interstate 5 in Merced County at postmile 15.5. This project specifically focuses on replacing a Changeable Message Sign (CMS) located near Santa Nella, approximately 0.4 miles north of Etcheverry Road. All construction activities associated with this project will be confined within the existing state right-of-way. The existing CMS on I-5 is in poor condition and outdated. This project addresses this critical need to ensure reliable operation of the HMS. A functioning HMS is essential for Meeting Senate Bill (SB-1) targets, which mandate a 90% reduction in traffic fatalities and severe injuries by 2027.
