The City of Manteca in partnership with Caltrans District 10 and SJCOG are working to improve safety and traffic flow at interchange located at State Route 120 and Union Road. The project will improve safety conditions by constructing new on and off ramps, widening Union Road to 4 lanes between Daniels Street and Lifestyle Street, and providing a Class I shared-use path and Class II bike lanes.
The new interchange reduces conflict points between vehicles and moves traffic more efficiently through the interchange. The DDI is unique in that traffic on the local road is shifted to the left side of the road, before being shifted back to the right. Eliminating any left hand turns through the intersection. Upgrading to the unique DDI configuration provides significant cost savings and safety benefits for both vehicles and pedestrians.
Union Road is a key crossing of State Route 120 in the City’s bicycle master plan. The new Class I path will provide a 10-foot wide grade-separated trail that eliminates all bicycle/vehicle conflict points within the interchange to provide safe and efficient passage for bicycles, pedestrians, and other non-motorized travel.
Auxiliary lanes will be constructed between Airport Way and Main Street on eastbound and westbound State Route 120 to provide for increased traffic flow during peak times.
