Junction Boulevard and Event Center Drive intersection to open in September

Updated August 12, 2019
Construction is wrapping up on the Junction Boulevard and Event Center Drive intersection. The new intersection is anticipated to open the week of September 9.

This work is part of ongoing upgrades to @the Grounds, previously known as the Placer County Fairgrounds, and will add a traffic signal and new entrance to the facility. These changes will help improve traffic flow in the area, particularly during large special events.

To decrease @the Grounds traffic in the adjacent neighborhood, Lawton Avenue is also undergoing improvements. 

Typical construction hours will be weekdays, 7 a.m. - 5 p.m. Work may begin as early as 6 a.m. on extremely hot days. Roads will remain open to traffic for the duration of the project. However, there may be temporary lane closures. Please drive with care through the construction zone. 
This  $1.5 million project is paid for by the Traffic Mitigation Fund, Public Facilities Fund, and a land acquisition agreement between the City and Placer County. 

Updates are also planned for the other @the Grounds entrance at the Washington Boulevard, All America City, and Lincoln Street intersection in 2020. 

For questions about construction, please call (916) 773-5400 or email Placer Valley Tourism.
