Caltrans opens new Highway 99 off-ramp to Atwater Boulevard

Caltrans has opened the southbound Highway 99 off-ramp to Atwater Boulevard. Construction of the off-ramp was completed approximately one week ahead of schedule, allowing Caltrans to open the area Dec. 17.

Crews built a new right lane, right shoulder and off-ramp. The work is part of the $43 million Highway 99 Atwater Free Project, which has converted 2.7 miles of the highway from four lanes to six.
