Lathrop California A cho i ce commun i t y T he City of Lathrop is located in San Joaquin County, in Northern California, 70 miles east of San Francisco. The 23-square-mile city is at the intersection of the I-5 (one of the major freeways in California and the major north-south freeway along the entire west coast) and SR120 freeways. Lathrop is located in the metro triangle bounded by the Bay Area, Stockton, and Sacramento, and is centrally located within a 30-minute commute of Tracy, Manteca, Stockton, Lodi, Modesto, Livermore, and Pleasanton. Lathrop was platted when the railroad was extended to that point. In September 1869, four months after the railheads of the transcontinental railroad met at Promontory, Utah, the completion of the San Joaquin River Bridge at Mossdale Crossing at Lathrop actually completed the west coast link. A post office has been in operation at Lathrop since 1871. The city was named for the maiden name of the wife of Leland Stanford. The City of Lathrop is served by the San Joaquin Regional Transit District and the Altamont Commuter Express (ACE) train. Over 80,000 vehicles per day commute over the Altamont Pass into the Bay Area for employment. There is a strong demand for
