The Cedar Avenue on ramp to westbound 180 will be widened to two lanes in order to accommodate a ramp metering system.
That's just one part of this highly detailed project and many drivers say they are anxious to see it all come together.
"I take the surface streets to miss that area during crowded times. I won't drive on it during crowded times," said James Palmer
It's a common frustration for many drivers in the Fresno area.
"It certainly is congested the way traffic merges from both directions," Timothy Bilegard said.
State route 180 between 41 and 168 has long been known to cause some major traffic jams during rush hour.
"If they were to widen that, add some metering lights, that would be great improvements to the freeways here," Judith Ripley said.
That's exactly what CalTrans is working on.
It's called the 'Braided Ramp Project.'
New ramps will go over each other to create several designated bypass lanes where drivers then have the option to continue on 180, 41, or 168 without having to merge lanes.
"It's going to basically clear up confusion where people are trying to decide to merge. It's going to be a lot more efficient, " said Gloria Rodriguez of CalTrans.
While they haven't exactly started construction work on the $49 million project, CalTrans says they plan to get the ball rolling as soon as possible.
"It's going to start this month, and will continue working on it until 2013," Rodriguez said.
