Intersection in Historic Lathrop will get facelifts to roadways, sidewalks

One of the older sections of Lathrop will soon be getting sidewalks.

The Lathrop City Council recently approved a consent calendar item that will provide sidewalk infill for the intersection of J and 5th streets in Historic Lathrop — adding ADA-accessible ramps as well as providing minor roadway and sidewalk improvements.

The formation of a capital improvement project and the dedication of $100,000 from the General Fund Street Repair Reserves fund will fund the design engineering services needed to get the project to the point of being bid — where it will eventually end up back before the council or consideration.

Once formally completed the project will help provide pedestrian connectivity with the rest of the neighborhood according to the staff report prepared for the council.

While much attention has been paid to the sections of town where Lathrop is experienced massive growth — River Islands and the Stanford Crossing, for example — the city has also remained dedicated to ensuring that the existing portions of town aren’t neglected or left behind.

At the end of this past summer the city was finally able to reopen Sangalang Park — which serves the Stonebridge neighborhood on the east side of I-5 — to the public with updated amenities, and earlier this year the Lathrop Manteca Fire District unveiled the upgrades to Station 31 on J Street.
