County board tackles road fix

Chris Caskey, The Union Democrat

PUBLIC MEETING: Tuolumne County Board of Supervisors, 9 a.m. Tuesday, Board of Supervisors Chambers, fourth floor, County Administration Center, 2 S. Green St., Sonora.

The Tuolumne County Board of Supervisors this week will take up a major road project, a birthing center and a budget update.

Tuesday, the board is scheduled to consider increased spending on a project to widen Mono Way, which has seen its projected costs and contingencies increase from about $3.2 million to $4.1 million. The road project will broaden Mono Way from Greenley Road to Fir Drive.

Though the city of Sonora is the lead agency on the joint project, the county is covering about 90 percent of the costs through traffic-mitigation fees paid by builders. Because of this, the county board must sign off on the almost $1 million increase before the project can move forward.

Along with widening and repaving the major thoroughfare, the project calls for installing a retaining wall on the side of much of the stretch, increasing the size of a culvert under Mono Way and building new sidewalks.

The board Tuesday will also consider a plan proposed by Soulsbyville-area nurse and midwife Ellen Jasmer to use her property for a multi-suite birthing center. Jasmer already conducts a midwife business on the Draper Mine Road property.
