LODI, CA — Members of the public are invited to a public information meeting on Tuesday, July 17, 2012, to learn about and comment on the Harney Lane Grade Separation Project. The meeting will be held from 6:00 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. at the Carnegie Forum, 305 West Pine Street, Lodi, California.
At the public information meeting on July 17, 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. Members of the public will have an opportunity to ask questions and make comments on the project.
Project Background and Alternatives
Harney Lane is a two-lane, east-west urban collector near the City of Lodi’s southern city limit. Harney Lane intersects the Union Pacific Railroad (UPRR) approximately ¾ mile west of State Route 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 State Route 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.
At a Shirtsleeve Session at 7:00 a.m. on July 24, 2012, the Lodi City Council will review the project alternatives and the results of the public information meeting and receive the design team’s preferred alternative.
At the City Council meeting on August 1, 2012, the City Council will review the alternatives, receive public comments, and select the alternative for the project.
