Highway 33 Specific Plan Update

Welcome to the Highway 33 Specific Plan Update

Project Overview

The City of Newman was awarded a California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) Grant to update the 1996 Newman Highway 33 Specific Plan document. The Specific Plan document acts as a planning tool to guide future development along the Highway 33 corridor for the next 20 years.

The updated Highway 33 Specific Plan addresses land use and City growth patterns, include new and current projects along the Highway 33 corridor, and focuses on pedestrian, bicycle, and vehicular transportation improvements. These improvements will address transit needs, safety and lighting issues, intersections, as well as reduce greenhouse gas emissions. This project website serves as a ‘one-stop shop’ to provide the community with project updates, additional project information, related documents and resources.
