Through a highly competitive grant program and with assistance from StanCOG, the Stanislaus Council of Governments, the City of Oakdale was recently awarded a $700,000 grant from the State funded Active Transportation Program.
The granted project is referred to as the High School G Street Bike and Pedestrian Corridor Improvement project. With the combination of pedestrian, bicycles, and high level of vehicle traffic near Oakdale High School, city officials said it was important to make this section of G Street a priority.
The project scope will include increasing bicycle and pedestrian accessibility which may include removal and replacement of inaccessible or noncompliant handicap ramps, reconfiguration of sidewalks and street curbing and bicycle lane installations and improvements.
These improvements are scheduled to begin in the spring of 2020.
Those seeking additional information can contact the city’s Public Services department, Monday through Friday form 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., at (209) 845-3600.
