A year ago this month, contractors officially broke ground on arguably the biggest-ever construction project in Galt.

The major interchange modifications currently underway should alleviate congested traffic on the C Street bridge seen during morning and afternoon commutes, and on days the Galt Market is open.

The work includes widening C Street and extending A Street over Highway 99. It should take about two years; it would have been only a year if the highway was completely shut down, according to city officials.

Much of the work has been done at night.

Project planners have also included improved pedestrian and bicycle access through the interchange. It will also pave the way for future expansion on the city's west side. A sound wall will be built.

Meanwhile, C Street is currently closed and detours are in place. Check the project's website for updates at www.centralgaltic.com.
