I-5 and Otto Drive West
CalTrans, Stockton, California
POITRA Visual provided photo-realistic simulations for the I-5 North Stockton Corridor, 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.
The project added a new interchange at Otto Drive which would result in significant modifications to the roadway. Two alternatives were explored: an alternative that featured an above-grade profile for I-5, and an alternative that featured an at-grade profile for I-5 with a depressed profile for Otto drive. Photo-simulation was the medium chosen as the best way to accurately communicate the different impacts of each proposed design to the public.
An aerial view photosimulation of the Otto Drive Interchange depicting both alternatives was also produced by POITRA Visual.
