Lower Sacramento Road will be closed between Marlette Road and Grider Way today and is expected to reopen in the fall of 2012. An undercrossing on Lower Sacramento Road is being constructed about a half-mile south of Eight Mile Road.

Lower Sacramento Road is often used by Lodi residents heading to North Stockton, University of the Pacific and San Joaquin Delta College.

Grider Way, south of the construction site, will be open to Whistler Way before the closure of Lower Sacramento Road, providing a detour around the construction site for northbound traffic and access to area businesses, according to a news release from Buethe Communications.

From Eight Mile and Lower Sacramento roads, southbound traffic will be directed to West Lane and south on West Lane to Hammer Lane.

Local businesses will be open and access to the businesses will be maintained during construction.

The undercrossing is one of three under construction that replace the current railroad crossings in the north Stockton area with bridge crossings that to accommodate expected traffic growth and development.

Funding comes from the Measure K half-cent sales tax, Proposition 1B grant money, State Local Partnership funds and Union Pacific Railroad.

A newsletter with photographs and information about the project's progress will be placed on the project website, www.northstocktonrailroad.com. A print copy of the newsletter can be mailed to residents without computers. For more information, call Jan Stanley at 209-464-8707, ext. 103.

Anyone with comments or questions about the closure of may email Stanley at hotline@buethecommunications.com.

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?
