The total cost of the Douglas/I-80 Improvement Project is $35 million, including:

  • $4.5 million for environmental and design costs
  • $4.8 million for property acquisition
  • $390,500 for pre-project construction work already completed
  • $22,572,488 for construction contract with R. L. Brosamer, the general contractor
  • $2.35 million for Caltrans project management, surveying and materials testing
  • $240,000 for consultant support during construction
  • $147,000 for city staff time


Funding sources are:

  • $10.69 million in State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) funds
  • $24.31 million in developer-paid traffic impact fees collected by the City of Roseville
The STIP funds primarily come from Federal and State fuel tax revenues that were allocated in 1998 when the city, with assistance from the Placer County Transportation Planning Agency (PCTPA), received approval from the California Transportation Commission to include this project in the STIP. 

Team Effort This project would not have happened without the help of many agencies and the City of Roseville gratefully acknowledges and wishes to thank its partners for their help, especially the California Department of Transportation and the PCTPA. 

For a project in Placer County to become eligible for STIP funds, the PCTPA must first approve the project and adopt it into its regional transportation improvement program.  The PCTPA supported the Douglas/I-80 Improvement Project from day one, and was instrumental in providing support that led to the California Transportation Commission’s inclusion of the project in the 1998 STIP allocation. 

Caltrans engineers have worked closely with the City of Roseville’s Public Works Department and the design consultants to help ensure the project was designed in accordance with Caltrans’ design and safety standards.  Caltrans also assisted the City with acquisition of properties needed for the project in accordance with requirements for STIP-funded projects.
