NOTICE: Request for Proposal
Groveland Circulation Plan!

The Tuolumne County Transportation Council (TCTC) is soliciting proposals from qualified consulting firms to facilitate a community-based planning process, resulting in a Planning document, for the unincorporated town of Groveland. This project intends to involve multiple community interest groups and stakeholders as it considers improvements to its Main street (State Route 120), access to important community nodes, bike and pedestrian movements for high traffic locations/destinations and also investigates opportunities to accommodate tour bus/coach parking to encourage healthy living and increased economic activity through an improved out-of-vehicle environment for locals and visitors.
Thank you for your consideration of this RFP.

The Transportation Council approved projects totaling nearly $3.9 million. County projects approved include a Park and Ride Lot in the community of Tuolumne ($318,500); an Alleyway Improvements Project, also in Tuolumne ($205,000); and a Roundabout in Sonora at the Loop Road/Sanguinetti Road intersection ($665,000). The City projects approved include improvements at Stockton Road/Washington Street including a Transit Hub ($1,990,000); and improvements to Washington and Seco Streets at the Red Church intersection ($695,000). Links to the conceptual drawings for each project are provided.

New Ramps at the Peaceful Oak Road/Highway 108 Interchange
have been funded!

With the adoption of the Regional Transportation Improvement Program (RTIP) by the Tuolumne County Transportation Council and State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) by the California Transportation Commission, the second set of on/off ramps at the Peaceful Oak Road/Highway 108 Interchange has been fully funded. Due to funding constraints with the East Sonora Bypass Stage II Project, the westbound off ramp and east bound on ramp had to be eliminated from the project for it to move forward into construction. Now, with this new funding, the originally planned complete four-way interchange at that location will become a reality within the next few years. Construction on the new westbound off ramp and eastbound on ramp is scheduled to begin in 2017.

Mono Way Widening Project Will Be Built!

“The City and County worked cooperatively to jointly fund the Mono Way Widening Project. Where traffic has historically bottlenecked along Mono way approaching Sanguinetti Loop Road, this project will add additional lanes in both directions. This section of roadway was historically State Route 108 until the Bypass was completed, at which time the ownership of Mono Way reverted back to the City and County. The Mono Way widening project will help bridge gaps in the existing transportation network along Mono Way. Pedestrian improvements are being added as part of the larger project to address traffic congestion, but represents important and needed steps towards completing non-motorized paths in the City and County. The proposed project will provide a 5-lane facility with a median lane and two lanes in each direction for its entire length. There will also be additional lanes at the signalized intersections for turning movements and vehicle stacking. Most of the major widening work will be on the north side of the project in the easterly half. Approximately 2100 lineal feet of sidewalk curb and gutter, and shoulder widening will be provided on the northerly side to have continuous sidewalk from the end of the existing sidewalk near Greenley Road to Fir Drive. On the Southerly side, sidewalks will be extended some 400’ easterly of the Timber Hills Shopping Center and terminated in a ramp to existing pavement. The termination of the sidewalk at this location is necessary to preserve access to four commercial buildings easterly from the point of termination. This project has been competitively bid, with the contract being awarded to George Reed of Modesto. The project is slated for this construction season and is a well-rounded transportation improvement project that will complete the sidewalk network in this area, add a bus stop for Tuolumne County Transit, and improve flow of traffic for motorists. The Transportation Council, which funds public transportation in Tuolumne County paid for the bus stop improvements included in the project.”

TCTC Strikes Rich Diggins:

Receives Three Grants

The Tuolumne County Transportation Council was recently awarded three Grants.

1. Sonora Revitalization Plan

The City of Sonora will work in partnership with the TCTC and members of the community to develop a Community Revitalization Plan. The Revitalization Plan will provide the strategies and implementation tools necessary to address the physical changes that will help improve the local economy by encouraging and increasing pedestrian safety, reducing congestion, and enhancing connectivity while protecting cultural history and quality of life. The planning process will seek to engage diverse public participation.

Grant Award: $225,000

2. Yosemite Transit Service Feasibility Study

Transportation options to Yosemite National Park from Tuolumne County are currently very limited. This study will explore routes inclusive of an intercity connection with the Central Valley and possibly B.A.R.T., as well as funding and implementation strategies. With more than 3.5 million visitors a year, strained parking, and increased vehicle congestion, gateway partners are excited about helping the park discover strategies to make visiting the park more accessible, convenient, and enjoyable. The Yosemite Feasibility Study will help local leaders and Park Officials determine the impacts public transportation can have on improved park capacity.

Grant Award: $67,000
