Traffic is now flowing better along Colony Road.

The traffic signals at the Freeway 99 on / ramp replaced the four-way stop as part of the Colony & Signal Project.

Cost including the recent change order of $7,170 (as paid through the Capital Transportation Fund) coupled with several previous change orders tallied at about $538,000.

"The signal at Colony and Hoff (were) turned on Jan. 13," said Engineering Supervisor Elizabeth Quilici at Tuesday's Ripon City Council meeting.

She added that the East Main Street Handicap Ramp & Crosswalk Project — along with the ramp and attached sidewalk, contractor Ross F. Carroll Inc. took care of the installation of the small piping to the drain storm water along with the re-striping of the adjacent leg of the intersection — as also being completed.

The much-anticipated Stockton Avenue Rehabilitation Project is scheduled to begin next month, Quilici reported.

Work will involve reconstruction of Stockton Avenue, from Fifth Street through Second Street intersection, in the area just southeast of downtown,
