All of us who live on the east side of Tracy have been suffering for months the results of the never-ending construction on Grant Line Road. I read with interest the write-up in the June 11 paper by Jon Mendelson (“Abiding Grant Line Road’s rough ride”).
It was interesting, but not one word has ever been state by the “powers by be” about the ridiculous section between MacArthur Drive and Parker Avenue. Where traffic has to move left into one lane, then open to two lanes, then move back left to one lane, going on for four sections going west and one section going east.
I see no work even preparing these sections so our Grant Line Road will be a four-lane road all the way. Are they going to leave it as is, finish the roadway into a smooth, beautiful Grant Line, and then at a later date decide they should have corrected those spaces, and tear up our nice new road all over again to fix what should have been done in the work they’re doing now?
Is everyone wondering the same thing as I? Let’s hope smarter heads prevail and we get a nice, four-lane Grant Line all the way through Tracy’s north side.
