Nossaman’s Role on Modesto Seventh Street Bridge Project Highlighted
Our role as outside counsel for Stanislaus County on the Seventh Street Bridge project was highlighted in the Modesto Bee article “Plans Advance for New Seventh Street Bridge in Modesto.” The bridge will span the Tuolumne River, replacing the current bridge, which dates to 1916. The Bee reports that “construction could start in the summer of next year and take until fall 2025, under the latest timeline from the city and Stanislaus County Public Works. Detailed engineering and right-of-way purchases are happening this year.” The new bridge will have four lanes for cars and trucks and more room for pedestrians and bicyclists, while a federal bridge program will cover most of the $64.5 million cost.
We are also providing counsel for the County on the North County Corridor Project—undertaken jointly with Caltrans. This is a high priority project for the area and its growing urbanized cities of Modesto, Oakdale and Riverbank. The project will ultimately build a west-east roadway that would improve regional network circulation, relieve existing traffic congestion, reduce traffic delay, accommodate future traffic, benefit commerce and enhance safety.
