Area residents are encouraged to attend a meeting tonight, Wednesday, Nov. 19 regarding a bridge replacement project, with the session set at Farmington Elementary School.
Members of the public are invited to the Public Information Meeting from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Farmington Elementary School, Multipurpose Room, 25233 East Highway 4, in Farmington.
The San Joaquin County Department of Public Works is hosting the meeting to discuss the project to replace the Escalon-Bellota Road Bridge over Littlejohns Creek just south of the town of Farmington. The existing bridge was constructed in 1948 and last improved in 1968.
Public comments are invited, will become part of the public record, and will be considered in developing the project.
The purpose of the project is to improve public safety by building a safe and cost-effective bridge, designed to today’s standards. The project is being funded through the Federal Highway Bridge Program.
The project is in the environmental stage, which is expected to last about 18 to 24 months. This will be followed by final design, right-of-way activities, and then construction, which is anticipated in summer 2019.
