The Pelandale Avenue/Sisk Road intersection in Modesto currently has traffic controls in place during the $56.3 million project to replace the 44-year-old Pelandale Avenue interchange at Highway 99.
Eastbound traffic on Pelandale Avenue from Salida Boulevard to Sisk Road has one through lane with a left-turn lane at the onramp to northbound Highway 99. Westbound Pelandale Avenue has the existing center through lane closed, and traffic must merge left to access the left-turn lane or merge right to access a single right-turn lane. This configuration will remain in place for several months.
Above, traffic moves north and south on Highway 99 as work goes on in the center divide area. Below, vehicles heading east on Pelandale are backed up on the overpass as other vehicles weave around white traffic barriers.
Motorists can expect to experience lengthy delays and are encouraged to utilize alternative routes when possible. Motorists can sign up on the project’s website – www.sr99pelandale.org – to receive alerts on the latest developments. The project will be completed in stages, with Stage 1 running approximately May to September. Construction is expected to be completed in early 2017.
