Somewhere near the water tower perched at the end of a line of palm trees along Highway 99 between Manteca and Ripon is where a major interchange key to growth for the next 30 years in both cities is expected to be built.

It also will serve as the main access to the biggest development ever proposed in Manteca – the 1,037-acre Austin Road Business Park envisioned to generate 13,000 jobs and provide housing for 10,200 people.

How the interchange will be funded and exactly where it will be built are two questions that elected leaders in Manteca and Ripon will need to answer.

The answer to where the interchange will go is expected to be provided in an $111,109 study the Manteca City Council is expected to commission when they meet Tuesday at 7 p.m. at the Civic Center, 1001 W. Center St.

Manteca staff along with representatives from Ripon, the San Joaquin Council of Governments and Caltrans are recommending the hiring of Mark Thomas & Co. to perform a project study report.

The consultant – working with staff from both cities – will develop a plan to connect future road networks in Ripon and Manteca. After that, an assessment of future traffic needs will be done based on approved land uses. Then the work will be submitted to Caltrans for approval.

Once Caltrans approves the interchange location, the next step would be environmental studies along with an analysis of alternatives.
