STOCKTON (CBS13) – Downtown Stockton will be host to Stage 5 of the AMGEN Tour of California on Thursday that goes from Stockton to Elk Grove.
Stockton officials are encouraging spectators to line the course and they’re warning travelers to be aware of street closures and travel alerts.
The race kicks off near the Stockton Arena at approximately 11:20 a.m. It heads east on Fremont Street, north on El Dorado Street, and east on Harding Way to Waterloo Road. It wraps up at 3:40 p.m. in Elk Grove.
Stockton street closures will be in effect from 10:50 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and officials warn that streets will be closed to travel and through traffic.
In Elk Grove, the race is expected to generate impacts for e-tran’s commuter service routes 10 and 12 and local service routes 110, 111 and 112, a city spokesman said.
Road closures on Civic Center Drive and Big Horn Boulevard will result in the closure of that bus stop. Riders should access service from the stops near Big Horn and Elk Grove boulevards or the temporary bust stop activated on Laguna Springs Drive and Lotz Parkway, according to a statement.
Changes of servicing on local routes will vary. Some detours will have multiple stops that will not be serviced. Customers are encouraged to contact e-tran’s customer service center at (916) 683-8726 with questions or to request more information about specific stops or routes.
