Public Works is beginning a pilot project to test a new type of paving material, roller compacted concrete (RCC). The material will be tested in several locations: Washington, from Pleasant Grove Boulevard to just north of Mountain Park Drive; and Atkinson, from Church Street, through and including Denio Loop.

The project will remove the existing failing asphalt and replace it with a new concrete surface.

Sweeping not only keeps Roseville's streets clean, but also removes pollutants and organic materials before they enter the storm drain system, which flows directly into our streams.
