The Central Galt Interchange project will be the largest and most expensive project in the city’s history.
The city will build a new overpass connecting A Street across Highway 99. Once that is complete, the city will demolish the current C Street overpass and build a new bridge. The project is scheduled to be completed in fall 2012 as long as there is not high rainfall, Public Works Director Gregg Halladay said.
The Galt City Council awarded the construction project to Teichert Construction for more than $4 million less than estimated costs. The city originally planned to spend $25.15 million on construction, but Teichert was the low bidder at $20.93 million.
The city will hold a public informational meeting at 6 p.m. Oct. 28 in the Galt Police Department community room to discuss the project. Residents will receive information on access to the Galt Market and downtown businesses, other detours and a timeline for work.
