Members of the public are invited to a public information meeting on Tuesday, July 17 to learn about and comment on the Harney Lane Grade Separation Project.
The meeting will be held from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the Carnegie Forum, 305 W. Pine St., Lodi.
At the meeting, the project manager for the design team will present the project alternatives and the estimated costs of each alternative being considered. The project manager will also discuss how the construction may be staged to have the least impact on surrounding properties, businesses and the traveling public.
Citizens will have an opportunity to ask questions and make comments on the project.
Harney Lane intersects the Union Pacific Railroad (UPRR) approximately three-quarters of a mile west of Highway 99. Traffic on Harney Lane is expected to increase as the city continues to grow. Keeping the existing at-grade railroad crossing on Harney Lane would cause significant traffic congestion on Harney Lane, the surrounding intersections, and the Highway 99/Harney Lane interchange.
The city's General Plan includes a railroad grade separation at the UPRR crossing.
Two types of project alternatives are being considered — an underpass below the UPRR tracks and an overhead above the UPRR tracks.
The grade separation will ultimately have four lanes.
