Community Meeting


At the community meeting on Tuesday, June 11, proposed updates to phase 1 construction were shared with approximately 90 attendees. Improvements include: 

Phase 1
  • Install a new traffic signal at the intersection of Washington Boulevard and Kaseberg Drive

  • Widen Washington Boulevard from two to four lanes between Sawtell Road and Kaseberg Drive, and Diamond Oaks Road and Pleasant Grove Boulevard

  • Improve signalized intersections along Washington Boulevard

  • Construct a new multi-use trail from Pleasant Grove Boulevard to All America City Boulevard, along the east side of Washington Boulevard

  • Enhance the existing bicycle and pedestrian railroad under-crossing


Phase 2
  • Widen Washington Boulevard from two to four lanes, between Kaseberg Drive and Diamond Oaks Road

  • Replace and widen the existing Union Pacific Railroad Andora bridge with a new bridge

The total cost of all phases of the Washington Boulevard/Andora Widening Project requires approximately $35 million. A significant portion of this cost includes building a temporary shoofly to allow continued rail operations during construction of a new wider railroad bridge. Despite applying for a variety of competitive state and federal funds, the City does not currently have the necessary funding to move forward with the full project at this time. However, funding is available for phase 1. 

In order to move forward with phase 1 construction, your support is necessary. The City was awarded an Active Transportation grant by the California Transportation Commission (CTC) to partially fund the project's pedestrian and bike improvements. Because the scope of phase 1 has been revised to include the traffic signal and pathway south of Sawtell Road, the CTC wants to know whether you support these enhancements. The CTC is expected to consider the expanded project scope, along with your input, and vote at an upcoming meeting. If the CTC votes to deny the changes, phase 1 work would not occur. 

Tell us whether you support phase 1 by completing a brief questionnaire through Sunday, June 16. Your feedback will be shared with the California Transportation Commission.

About the Project

As part of the City of Roseville’s Traffic Master Plan, the City will be widening Washington Blvd from Sawtell Road to Pleasant Grove Boulevard to improve traffic circulation and pedestrian traffic through the area.

The City is currently working on the design for the Washington/Andora Widening Project, which includes widening approximately one mile of Washington Boulevard from two to four lanes to better accommodate existing and future traffic volumes. Currently approximately 18,000 vehicles and 36 trains per day travel through this location. Road improvements will enhance accessibility for motorists, pedestrians, and cyclists along Washington Boulevard and nearby intersections. The project also includes the replacement and widening of the Union Pacific Railroad's Andora Bridge which crosses over Washington Boulevard.

The project team is currently working on the design and environmental analysis. This project includes a comprehensive public engagement process which involves meeting with local businesses, residents, and schools.
