Traffic Switch Detour to Temporary Bridge

Traffic Switch Detour to Temporary Bridge

Tracy, Calif. – Beginning Tuesday, April 5, 2016, pedestrian and vehicular traffic on E. 11th Street will be detoured to a new temporary bridge. The traffic switch will remain in effect through late 2017 until the completion of the new 11th Street bridge.

The bridge detour will consist of one lane in each direction with a speed limit of 25 miles per hour. Temporary traffic control will continue to be used to guide motorists and pedestrians through the construction zone. However, if possible, the City recommends using alternate routes to avoid the construction zone.

Safety is Our Priority!
The City is committed to maintaining access for residents and the traveling public as well as
keeping construction impacts to a minimum. Please be patient and arrange your plans accordingly to allow for possible longer travel times. Obey all traffic controls and drive with
caution through construction zones.

Stay Involved of Construction Progress!

It's a bike... uh... an electric bike... no it's both!  GenZe Bike tours San Joaquin USA this week

Touted as the "electric vehicle for the urban commuter", electric bike and scooter manufacturer GenZe stopped by the San Joaquin Partnership Board of Directors' meeting this week to demonstrate its new products. CEO Gurmeet Naroola, looking for the opportunity to collaborate with San Joaquin County cities in reducing street congestion and air pollution, offered to work with public agencies by lending them 1,000 bikes. Partnership President & CEO Mike Ammann met Naroola at the May 15-17 TiECon conference in Santa Clara and believing it would be a mutually beneficial experience, has arranged for Naroola and GenZe head of sales, Kevin Barnett, to tour San Joaquin County. They met with Esperanza Vielma at Cafe Coop who helped facilitate the tour. "This meeting and tour demonstrates the importance of the Partnership's connection with TiE (The Indus Entrpreneurs) and our "Greater Silicon Valley" marketing program," said Ammann at the conclusion of the Board meeting.

San Joaquin County Council of Governments tops in the state!

San Joaquin County Council of Governments tops in the state!

In the final calculations for fiscal year 2014, the San Joaquin Council of Governments (SJCOG) finished number one among regional agencies in the state as to percentage of federal obligations. This means the SJCOG is getting its available funding out to work at a greater rate than the 28 other regional agencies in California. "Our mission is to get transportation dollars out there to work for the traveling public as quickly as possible" says SJCOG Executive Director Andy Chesly. As a result, the region will receive, in fiscal year 2015, an additional $1.7 million! Finishing just behind the SJOCG were the Bay Area (MTC) , the San Diego Association of Governments, and the Sacramento Area Council of Governments.
