The SR 86 Valencia Road to Kinney Road project's design phase began in October 2011 and is expected to last approximately 18 months. The new design will be consistent with the Final Design Concept Report and Environmental Assessment, which was finalized in the summer of 2010. Proposed construction is expected to begin in fall 2014.
These are the proposed improvements of the project:
- Widening the roadway to two lanes in each direction
- Creating four travel lanes from Valencia Road to Sheridan Avenue
- Creating six travel lanes from Sheridan Avenue to Kinney Road
The design will include traffic control enhancements, utility relocation, drainage features, improved connections with local access streets and low-maintenance landscape.
The project includes six signalized intersections, two bridge structures and several major drainage structures.
