Trahern Road — a 1¼ mile road south of Manteca that has been getting heavy use by workers commuting to and from jobs in Tracy — is in line for resurfacing.
The San Joaquin County Board of Supervisors when they meet Tuesday is expected to award a $528,360 contract to Tom Mayo Construction to resurface the road that T-intersects with Airport Way in the west and Manteca Road in the east while crossing Union Road.
It is part of the circuitous route commuters primarily from the Modesto area take to avoid traffic congestion on the 120 Bypass to travel to and from jobs in Tracy using the Airport Way/Durham Ferry Road corridor to access roads heading into employment centers.
The route is also where the Waze App will direct traffic off of eastbound Interstate 205 and onto Kasson Road to connect with when a major accident either partially or completely shuts down the 120 Bypass.
All of that traffic ends up on Ripon streets in a bid to return to the freeway system at the Highway 99 onramp at Main Street just north of the Stanislaus River.
