Overview

The City of Tracy and the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) are working cooperatively to examine and analyze feasible alternatives for two interchange projects within the City of Tracy’s limits.

Proposed improvements are needed due to increased traffic demands from existing commercial development and planned future growth in San Joaquin County. The proposed I-205 & I-580/International Parkway Interchange Projects will reduce congestion resulting from ongoing and planned development of the Cordes Ranch Specific Plan and improve local traffic circulation.

Planning and Design

Environmental Planning

The I-205 & I-580/International Parkway Interchange Projects are currently in the environmental phase, which means that the proposed alternatives will be analyzed for potential environmental impacts as required by the National Environmental Protection Act (NEPA) and the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). This environmental analysis will look at a wide range of resource areas such as air quality, noise, community, and land use to identify potential impacts and establish clear mitigations prior to approval to move the projects forward.

Caltrans, the CEQA and NEPA lead agency for the I-205 & I-580/International Parkway Interchange Projects, is preparing to circulate the DEDs for both projects in Summer 2020. During the DED circulation period, Caltrans will solicit comments from the public and provide official responses in the FEDs.

I-205 & I-580 No-Build Alternative

Read the card below to learn more about the no-build alternative design solution for these intersections.

Under the No-Build Alternative, the existing interchanges for both I-205 and I-580 would remain unchanged except for planned and programmed improvements. Impacts from traffic associated with the Cordes Ranch Specific Plan would not be addressed and other mitigation for impacts of the specific plan would need to be identified.
