Caltrans State Route 94/State Route 125 Connector Project
The objective of the SR 94/SR 125 Connector Project is to improve traffic movement from southbound SR 125 to eastbound SR 94 by constructing a direct connector ramp between the two freeways, so motorists would no longer be required to exit the freeway at Spring Street to access eastbound SR 94. The project will also include construction of a southbound auxiliary lane on SR 125, a northbound auxiliary lane on SR 125 (contingent on availability of funding), as well as bicycle and pedestrian improvements at local freeway crossings. The Mariposa Street over crossing is proposed to be demolished and reconstructed to accommodate the freeway widening, and the intersection of Panorama Drive and Echo Drive will also be reconstructed to accommodate the new direct access ramp.
The California Transportation Commission (CTC) allocated $4 million for right of way for this project on August 13, 2020, which will cover property acquisition, utility relocation, and clearing the needed right of way. The right of way phase for this project is planned to be completed by December 2021. The award of the construction contract is planned for December 2022, and construction is estimated to be completed by September 2025.
Below is a summary of key project milestones completed.
