Fresno-Madera State Route 41 and Avenue 9 Sustainable Corridors Study
Fresno COG, in partnership with Madera County Transportation Commission (MCTC), conducted a study to determine the future transportation needs of the SR 41 corridor in the City of Fresno and the southern segment of SR 41 in Madera County. In addition, the study analyzed the future transportation needs of the Avenue 9 corridor in Madera County between SR 41 and SR 99.
The study identified existing and future issues along the two corridors related to safety, mobility, congestion, etc., and recommended sustainable improvements that will address the transportation needs of the residents in both counties through multi-modal approaches. Issues addressed include: mobility, access, safety, and connectivity for all modes of travel including automobiles, transit, walking, and bicycling.
This project began in July 2020 and concluded in July 2021 with the acceptance of the final study by the Fresno COG and MCTC Policy Boards.
