RIBBON CUTTING CEREMONY CELEBRATING THE ELIMINATION THE LAST CROSSING ROAD ON HIGHWAY 99

MERCED COUNTY, CA - Caltrans and MCAG hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony today to celebrate the elimination of the last at-grade crossing on Highway 99 in Merced County! The Plainsburg Freeway Project constructed a new interchange at Plainsburg Road and converted a four-lane expressway to a six-lane freeway from the Madera County line to Buchanan Hollow Road.

Many Merced County residents may remember the only traffic light on the 99 freeway that was eliminated after the completion of the highway overpasses in 1996 through Livingston. The intersection, which was known as "blood alley," was one of the last remaining traffic lights left after most had been removed through the years. Many of those intersections were also known as"blood alley" due to the high incidents of head-on collisions.
