The purpose of this design-build project delivery method is to streamline this project by overlapping design and construction phases and completing this project up to a year ahead of schedule saving taxpayer dollars while improving safety. This project will rehabilitate failed Portland Cement Concrete (PCC) panels with full depth asphalt concrete along the #2 truck lanes in both directions on Highway 99 from just south of the South Madera Overcrossing to just north of the Avenue 16 overcrossing within the City of Madera. An asphalt overlay of all lanes and shoulders located within this section will also be included.

The project will add lanes to increase the capacity of the freeway to accommodate current and future traffic volumes on State Route 99 which are expected to double between the years 2010 and 2040. This project is consistent with the Route Concept, the Interregional Transportation Strategic Plan, the Route 99 Business Plan, the Corridor System Management Plan, and the Tulare and Fresno Regional Transportation Plans. It continues the objective of widening all of State Route 99 to a minimum of a six- lane freeway throughout the San Joaquin Valley.

This project proposes to construct the new 4-lane Kings Canyon Expressway from just east of Temperance Avenue to Quality Avenue on a 6-lane right of way alignment. This segment will complete over 6 miles of NEW Expressway on SR180 that will safely transport local goods, daily commuters and Valley tourists traveling throughout Fresno County. With the extension of segments beyond this 4-lane expressway in the near future, this route will continue to be improved eastward and serves as the gateway to Kings Canyon/Sequoia National Parks.

This enhancement will upgrade this segment of State Route 198 from an expressway to a freeway, enhancing commuter mobility and daily movement of goods and services.
