This project will move State Route 99 approximately 100 feet to the west between Clinton Avenue and Ashlan Avenue to make way for the high-speed rail line, which will replace the northbound lanes. Additionally, the alignment project will improve traffic operations, reduce congestion and enhance traffic safety. The project scope includes:
From Clinton Avenue to Ashlan Avenue in central Fresno, a distance of about two miles.
The new Clinton Avenue Bridge over State Route 99 is taking shape. As at Tuolumne Street, the Clinton Bridge has to be raised to make clearance for future high-speed rail trains that will cross underneath. State Route 99 is also being shifted about 100 feet to the west between Clinton and Ashlan Avenues in order to make room for the high-speed rail corridor that will replace the current northbound lanes.
The SR 99 Realignment project began in December 2015 is expected to continue into the summer of 2018.
