State Route 180 Westside Expressway Route Adoption

State Route 180 Westside Expressway Route Adoption
The Department of Transportation (Caltrans) is proposing that the California Transportation Commission adopt a new segment of State Route 180, from Interstate 5 to the end of the freeway portion of State Route 180, near Valentine in the city of Fresno. Caltrans would recommend the alternative determined to offer the most appropriate location for an ultimate four-lane expressway for State Route 180 to the commission following public and resource agency review of the route adoption study. The formal approval of the extension of State Route 180 would enable Caltrans, in cooperation with local governments, to plan for future transportation projects needed within the corridor.

Centennial Corridor Project

Centennial Corridor Project - Bakersfield
Extending State Route 58 westward beyond State Route 99 is a concept which has been studied repeatedly. In the past decade two studies were completed – the 1991 Tier 1 SR 58 Route Adoption and the Bakersfield System Study. During both studies opposition to a Westside Parkway Connection resulted in the selection of alternatives that were more expensive and less practical. Because of limited funding none of the selected alternatives moved beyond the conceptual study. Read more about the Centennial Corridor Project...
