LOS BANOS, Calif. (AP) A plan to reroute Highway 152 around the town of Los Banos has been revived now that transportation officials have decided to build the bypass in phases.

Drivers who use Highway 152 to travel between Highway 99 and the Central Coast currently must pass through the stop-and-go traffic of Los Banos’ commercial district.

Transportation planners said Aug. 21 that breaking the 152 bypass into smaller projects will make the 40-year-old, $450 million roadway more financially manageable.

The new 10-mi. (16 km) road would run along the north side of Los Banos instead of through the heart of the city.

Construction could begin in 2013.
