Resurfacing is scheduled for residential streets in the Foothills/Junction and West Park neighborhoods. Regular roadway maintenance reduces the need for major costly street repairs in the future by protecting Roseville streets.
Work is underway on a road resurfacing project on portions of Sierra College Boulevard and Douglas Boulevard in Granite Bay. Placer County will be working on the project July 11 through July 29 during overnight hours, between 8 p.m. to 5 a.m.
Road resurfacing around Roseville is scheduled to begin in late June, with completion anticipated by the end of December. Much of the work will be done at night. By completing resurfacing and pavement projects annually, Roseville's streets are preserved and maintained at the lowest possible cost. Roads are prioritized based on their pavement quality, age and amount of traffic.
The City of Roseville has begun work to improve sight distance on Roseville Road by widening and straightening the ‘S’ curve in the roadway. New bike lanes, sidewalks and street lighting will be added, while utilities will be moved underground. The work zone will extend from Cirby Way south to the city limits.
Some Placer residents can soon look forward to lower flood insurance premiums now that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has issued new draft flood maps for the county. But in a number of areas, including some mapped for the first time, flood risk has increased and may change flood insurance requirements and costs for some property owners.
Work began April 4 to replace the Industrial Avenue bridge over Pleasant Grove Creek. It’s located south of Justice Center Drive and north of Blue Oaks Boulevard. Construction is anticipated to last through winter 2016/17. During construction the bridge will remain open to traffic in both directions.
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. A suitable neighborhood location has also been identified, on Hickory between Church and Oakland Streets. The project will remove the existing failing asphalt and replace it with a new concrete surface.
You may have seen the friendly faces of Bike/Walk Ambassadors on Roseville trails. This program to encourage safe biking and walking is expanding. Bike/Walk Ambassadors will now be around schools handing out rewards to students who are practicing safe biking and walking habits.
Roseville has 438 miles of roadways to maintain, worth more than $ 1 billion. It is an extremely valuable city resource. The most cost effective way to keep our roads in the best possible condition may not be what you think.

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. Public residential streets are swept at least once per month, while major and commercial streets are swept at least twice per month.
