SAN JOAQUIN COUNTY — Caltrans will repave 30 lane miles of State Route 99 from SR-4/ Crosstown Freeway to Hammer Lane in San Joaquin County, due to the funds from Senate Bill 1 (SB 1), the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017.
"SR-99 is a major trade route that endures a lot of wear and tear. This project will allow crews to make immediate repairs that provide a safer and smoother commute for motorists, while improving a busy freight corridor."
The project will benefit commuters traveling to and from the city of Stockton and truckers hauling commercial and agricultural goods to the businesses throughout San Joaquin County and beyond. More than 105,000 motorists per day use the roadway to reach their destination, and more than 13,300 truckers per day use this segment of SR-99.
"Without this SB 1 funded project, the pavement would continue to deteriorate, which would have a direct impact on travelers and result in costly repairs in the future. Providing a smooth roadway is imperative for the region and our local truckers who are transporting livestock, grapes, walnuts or other goods every day to businesses in San Joaquin County."
This $5.3 million project has been awarded to Teichert Construction, Inc., of Sacramento, California. Crews will repair and repave various sections of the roadway, filling potholes and smoothing pavement on SR-99, which is a major commercial route. Work is scheduled to begin the week of May 7, and take place during the night, Monday through Friday. Motorists are encouraged to plan ahead, use alternate routes, and Be Work Zone Alert.
Work schedule is subject to change due to traffic incidents, weather, availability of equipment and/or materials, and/or construction-related issues. More information and updates on projects can be found on the Caltrans District 10 Project Page or on Twitter via @CaltransDist10 and on Facebook at Caltrans-District-10.
SB 1 provides an ongoing funding increase of approximately $1.8 billion annually for the maintenance and rehabilitation of the state highway system. SB 1 funds will enable Caltrans to fix more than 17,000 lane miles of pavement, 500 bridges and 55,000 culverts by 2027.
Caltrans is committed to conducting its business in a fully transparent manner and detailing its progress to the public. For complete details on SB 1, visit http://www.rebuildingca.ca.gov/.
