I-5 South of March Lane Photosimulations

CalTrans, Stockton, California

POITRA Visual provided photo-realistic simulations for the I-5 North Stockton Corridor Project, which studied the I-5 Corridor through Stockton, California to make capacity improvements. The project resulted in highway widenings throughout the I-5 corridor, several interchange redesigns, and two new interchanges.

Several alternates to increase the capacity I-5 were proposed in the study. The simulations near March Lane were created to illustrate these alternates from a drivers perspective. The images were created using an Engineer provided background photograph of the existing conditions.

POITRA Visual also provided a series of 3d graphic cross-sections to further describe the modifications in study documents.

The alternates included additional mixed flow lanes in the median, added High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lanes in the median, and open grass medians verses paved medians each with the appropriate barriers. All alternates included additional auxiliary lanes widened to the outside shoulder and new sound walls.

The location South of March Lane looking north was considered representative of many locations along I-5 for these alternates.

POITRA used traditional digital painting techniques to add the proposed laneage, soundwalls, reconfigured medians and signage and adjusting traffic. The previous bridge and roadway design experience of the POITRA Visual principals played a key role in quickly interpreting the construction documents.

The final existing and proposed alternative photosimulation images were used as meeting materials for the public involvement process by the City of Stockton. article end
