Gambling On A New Road
Jamestown, CA — Chicken Ranch Casino is asking Tuolumne’s Supervisors to support its proposal for a new access road. The Me-Wuk Indians wants the Board to send a letter to Caltrans approving the tribes engineering plans for the road.
T.C. Community Resource Agency Deputy Director Duke York said at the meeting it will ease traffic in the area, “The Chicken Ranch Casino is proposing to fund the costs associated with planning, engineering and construction of the improvements at the intersection of the new road and state route 49/108,” he said. “They will also supply the necessary improvements needed to allow for the future installation of a signal light at the intersection when warranted.”
York added, “The proposed road would benefit all the residents living off of Chicken Ranch Road by reducing the amount of traffic on that road.”
The Board voted unanimously in favor of sending the letter to Caltrans in support of the new road.
