Phase 1 Overview
All access will be restricted on the new 2-lane facility between SR99 and Dakota Avenue. Access on Dakota Ave will be similar to that which exists today. This project also includes improvements to 5th Street and 6th Street with improved connections to SR-99, including adding a new connection to Needham Street. Some sections of SR 132 will be constructed below grade (depressed roadway sections), as shown in blue on the project exhibit. Roadway drainage will include a pump station, roadside bioswales, infiltration basins, and retention/detention basins to accommodate storm runoff from the new facility.
The following features are included in the Phase 1 Project:
Land surveyors will be on site performing detailed design and right of way surveys. These detailed surveys record the existing features to ensure an accurate and comprehensive design is prepared.
The design team is meeting with all affected utility companies to identify their facilities and any conflicts to be resolved during the design.
Right of Way
The surveyors, designers and right of way team are working to identify impacts to adjacent parcels along the right of way. An exhibit to show proposed acquisition areas will be added to this site with a future update.
Frequently Asked Questions
What will the Phase 1 Project do with the soil stockpiles?
The project will encapsulate the existing stockpiles in their current location. Encapsulation will occur by building the new highway pavement section over the stockpile, covering the stockpile with new clean fill material and containing the stockpile behind retaining walls.
Will the intersection be signalized at North Dakota Avenue and SR 132 (Maze)?
The design team will evaluate the intersection using a strict quantitative process to determine if it will be stop controlled or signal controlled. Our findings will be presented in future website updates.
Will the Phase 1 Project include soundwalls?
Yes, but only in certain locations and not the entire corridor. The soundwall locations are shown on project exhibit.
