About the project
The new extension will result in a long-anticipated east-west arterial which will reduce traffic delays and improve safety. The connection will include a new interchange at Interstate 5, efficiently linking I-5 with State Route 99 to the east while also providing a new regional connection between Franklin and Freeport boulevards. The project will relief traffic congestion on the Meadowview/Mack Road corridor and reduce overall travel times within the local and surrounding community. The new extension and connection to I-5 will support economic development and revitalization within the community along the corridor.
A public-private partnership
The project is funded through a public-private partnership with use of Measure A funding as well as funds from the adjacent private land developer M&H for the Delta Shores development. The 800 acre master-planned, mix use development includes 1.3 million square feet of retail and 5,000 residential units. To learn more about Delta Shores visit www.merlonegeier.com.
