Editor, Manteca Bulletin,
The planned crossing alternative for trucks connecting between Interstate 5 and Highway 99 was, and still should be Roth Road. Stick to the plan.
Both Lathrop and Manteca cities and citizens will benefit from limiting truck traffic to local deliveries on Lathrop Road. And, this will encourage further residential and commercial development along all of Lathrop Road, with a beneficial financial impact for city taxes and rising home values.
Lathrop High School and residents along Lathrop Road are already tired of suffering the impacts of heavy truck traffic crossing between freeways.
Please give trucks a route on Roth Road from I-5, over to the French Camp interchange on 99.
Save Lathrop Road for us.
