Maybe More Stimulus Money

Sonora, CA — More federal Stimulus money may be on the way to Tuolumne County.

At the Tuesday supervisorial meeting Public Works Director Peter Rei will outline the Jobs for Main Street (Stimulus II) program. This program was passed by the House in December and is the process of being considered by the Senate. If approved it would then be signed by President Obama.

Caltrans has informed Tuolumne County it should program for $2.8 million. Public Works Director Peter Rei comments that the only work that could be scheduled in 90 days following the President’s signature would be a number of paving projects.

His department’s tentative list includes chip seals on Ferretti Rd. in Groveland, Jacksonville Rd., Tuolumne Rd. North, Smith Station Rd., Mono Vista Rd. and South Fork Rd.

Repaving projects would include the second half of Tuolumne Rd. from last year’s stopping point to the signal at Hwy 108, Greenley Rd. from where the city stopped paving all the way to Lyons Bald Mountain Rd., Rawhide Rd. from Shell Rd. to Hwy 49, Fifth Ave. in Jamestown and a small portion of Parrots Ferry Rd.
