Motorists no longer have to take a detour from west Lodi to western Stockton.

A new railroad bridge on Lower Sacramento Road has been completed south of Eight Mile Road. The bridge improves vehicle safety and will allow emergency responders and other vehicles to cross under the tracks unimpeded, according to project spokeswoman Judith Buethe.

Project partners include area residents and businesses, San Joaquin Council of Governments, San Joaquin County, California Department of Transportation, California Transportation Commission and Union Pacific Railroad.

The underpass is part of a $50 million project in North Stockton, which will include railroad overcrossings on Eight Mile Road at the Union Pacific Railroad tracks. Funding comes from Measure K, the voter-approved half-cent sales tax in San Joaquin County, the State-Local Partnership Program and Union Pacific.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
