U.S. 50 at Watt Avenue Interchange Sacramento
The project involved modifying the existing interchange on U.S. 50 at Watt Avenue to reduce congestion, install dedicated transit facilities, improve access and safety for bicyclists and pedestrians.
* Widening the existing Watt Avenue overcrossing at U.S. 50 to add: two additional through lanes and two auxiliary lanes over the freeway; additional lanes for high occupancy vehicles to the freeway on-ramps; widen and realign freeway off-ramps to terminate at Watt Avenue at two signalized intersections.
* Add a new dedicated Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) lane on Watt Avenue from north of the interchange to the existing Manlove Light Rail Station.
* Construct a new center structure connecting the existing northbound and southbound U.S. 50 overpasses.
* Add a continuous bicycle/pedestrian pathway separated from vehicular traffic along the east side of Watt Avenue between La Riviera Drive and Manlove Road, with grade separated undercrossings at the freeway ramps.
