The city of Lodi is hoping to receive part of $11 billion in funding available from the county, state and federal governments to improve local roads and air quality by 2040.
The San Joaquin Council of Governments, San Joaquin County’s regional transportation planning, coordinating and financing agency, adopted the 2014 to 2040 Regional Transportation Plan at its June 26 meeting. The plan forecasts transportation needs through 2040 and serves as San Joaquin region’s first long-range plan to meet the requirements of California’s Senate Bill 375.
