24th Street Improvement Project
The proposed project in general would widen, realign and restripe 24th Street from west of State Route 99 to east of M Street, as well as realign and restripe 23rd Street from west of C Street to east of M Street, in order to add two travel lanes (one in each direction) to the roadway. The project would also encompass improvements to the 24th Street/State Route 99 interchange and to the northbound State Route 99 auxiliary lane, as well as the widening of the Oak Street/24th Street intersection.
