Established in San Joaquin County in 2010, Haggerty Construction, Inc. is a full-service, design-build, commercial & industrial general contractor.

Haggerty Construction principals, Ryan and Andrea Haggerty, CFO, are both graduates of Saint Mary's High School and are local residents of Stockton.

Delta levees pass inspection after Napa earthquake


STOCKTON - As soon as engineers from Kjeldsen Sinnock and Neudeck (KSN) learned of Sunday's earthquake near Napa, their assignment was clear -- check levees in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta.

"We got out and look, and inspect the levees to see if there's any distress, settlement," Chris Neudeck said.

KSN is a Stockton civil engineering company that maintains about half the levees in the delta. Neudeck said the levees west and northwest of Stockton held firm.

"When you shake anything and sand is in it, it tends to liquify and settle," Neudeck said. "With the low sea levels behind levees, we want to make sure that doesn't occur. In the case of the recent quake, no distress was located."

Neudeck said delta levees also held up well during the larger Loma Prieta quake from 1989.

California Transportation Commission Awards $221 Million in Active Transportation Program Funds Stat

At their August 20 meeting, the California Transportation Commission (CTC) recommended 148 bicycle and pedestrian projects and programs for funding from the new Active Transportation Program (ATP), including 4 from San Joaquin County.

The ATP is a new statewide grant program that funds bicycle and pedestrian improvements throughout California. Under the ATP, the CTC awarded $221 million for projects and programs in two categories: a statewide competition and a separate competition for small rural and urban projects. Not surprisingly, the ATP received far more applications than it was able to fund.

Stockton police union helps needy school for 5th year


STOCKTON, Calif. - For the fifth year, it's seemed like Christmas in August for the kids and staff at McKinley Elementary School in Stockton.

That's after truckloads of supplies, equipment and furniture were delivered by members of the Stockton Police Officer's Association.

Monday, dozens of boxes and more than a hundred folding chairs were dropped off at the school. Students and staff showed their appreciation with applause, smiles and signs.

McKinley Principal Sonia Ambriz said the annual donation of supplies makes for a stronger community.

"It's a good way of having kids make the relationship with police, knowing they're reaching out to the community and doing wonderful things, not just on the streets where they see them, but at our schools," Ambriz said..

McKinley is located at the intersection of 9th Street and El Dorado Street in south Stockton.

Are Stockton loitering signs helping or hurting?


ID=14470265

STOCKTON, Calif. - The city of Stockton has installed signs around the downtown off-ramps that are meant to discourage loitering and panhandling. Police can give people citations for not following the rules.

But an authority on Stockton homeless issues said the signs may be making the problem of street begging worse, not better.

"It actually perpetuates it. The poor don't have ways to pay the fine. They get fined, but there's no way to pay it. In some ways, it encourages panhandling," Edward Figueroa, the Director of St. Mary's Dining Room, said.
