Caltrans informed the Transportation Expressway Authority Sept. 19 that the proposed Lancaster interchange has been eliminated, which leaves only two locations under consideration the Stearns Road approach (Bloomingcamp Ranch) or the Wamble Road approach (Burchell Nursery).
I have always thought that the Lancaster site would be more of a bypass than the other locations. Our ranch is heavily vested in almond and walnut trees and expensive microirrigation, not to mention our bake shop, park and pond. The ranch is our sole living. This has been our home for 65 years and five generations.
Please review the possibility of placing the interchange on the southeast corner of Stearns Road and Highway 120. There are about three parcels there that are fairly level and do not have any of the impacts upon ag, a current business, employees or families living there.
