Caltrans To Provide Update on Plans for Stockton Channel Viaduct


Stockton – The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), District 10 will provide a presentation to area business owners, partnering agencies and interested members of the public on plans for replacing the Stockton Channel Viaduct, Tuesday, March 26th, from 8:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. at the Stockton Chamber of Commerce Conference Room.

This major highway project to rebuild the bridge on Interstate 5 in San Joaquin County, spanning the Stockton Channel is necessary to ensure the long-term serviceability and structural integrity needed to accommodate the 130,000 vehicles that use this route on a daily basis.
