Editor, Manteca Bulletin,
We have only lived here 2 plus years. We live in Del Webb ay Woodbridge right off of Lathrop Road. I have driven around the surrounding areas a lot.
Lathrop Road should not be a truck route. First it is a residential area, which means school students walking in the area either East Union High and Lathrop High school. Pedestrians crossing Lathrop Road is a safety issue which will only get worse.
In my opinion the only logical truck route should be Arch Road between Highway 99 and Interstate 5. It is 2 lanes each way with no residential areas, no schools, and no pedestrians.
Lathrop Road should not be a truck route except for local deliveries!
