If you are heading west from Lodi, you no longer have to make a left turn across oncoming traffic to get to Tower Park Marina and Tower Park Village.
Caltrans has completed the construction of an access road from westbound Highway 12 at the intersection of Glasscock Road/Tower Park Way. This access road eliminates the need for left hand turns, which improves safety for motorists. Instead of turning left, westbound drivers will make a right turn onto Glasscock Road and then make a quick left turn onto the access road. The access road then curves under the freeway to Tower Park Way.
Other planned improvements along the Highway 12 corridor include a rehabilitation of Bouldin Island, which includes a concrete barrier from the Potato Slough Bridge west to the county line, shoulder improvements, and a five-mile roadway replacement.
