A narrow stretch of Lower Sacramento Road that goes underneath the Union Pacific Railroad trestle in Acampo should become safer during the summer.

The San Joaquin County Board of Supervisors adopted plans for the road improvement project at Tuesday's board meeting. The project calls for street lights, flashing beacons, radar speed feedback signs, pavement markers, concrete slope paving, striping and widening on Lower Sacramento Road.

Left-turn lanes are also planned on southbound Lower Sacramento Road at Woodson and Collier roads.

Construction is scheduled to begin in June and be completed within 25 working days. However, construction could be delayed because county officials must review the site for possible endangered species, such as the Swainson's hawk.

The cost of the project is $602,000 from the county construction budget, $436,000 in federal funding from the Highway Safety Improvement Program and $166,000 in California Proposition 1B.

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?
