Roseville will be rehabilitating Washington Boulevard from Oak Street to Elefa Street to improve the quality of the roadway. All streets will be open to vehicle traffic. However, there will be temporary lane closures while work is underway.Construction is scheduled for July through September.
Resurfacing is scheduled mid-summer through fall for residential streets in the Foothills/Junction, West Park, and Fiddyment Farm neighborhoods. Maintenance in these areas is necessary to guard against the need for major, more costly, street repairs in the future.
Roseville will be constructing new sidewalks and curb ramps along Church Street, where they are currently absent. Repair work to a few existing sidewalk locations will also be done. The project is funded by a federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG). Construction begins late June and last approximately 3 months. Work hours will be weekdays between the hours of 7 a.m. and 5 p.m.
Construction began June 1 on grading the future site for a relocated Fire Station No. 1 at Lincoln Street and Linda Drive, and a segment of the Miner's Ravine Trail under the Lincoln Street bridge. During the work, Linda Drive may be narrowed to one lane from Jefferson toward Lincoln Street. Construction on the project is expected through December 2015.
Roseville is constructing a concrete pedestrian path connecting Bonicelli and Mt. Baldy Courts to provide a more direct pedestrian route for children walking to and from Diamond Creek Elementary School. The project is anticipated to be completed at the end of June.
The City of Roseville is hosting a community meeting on Monday, July 13 at Maidu Community Center, 5:30 - 7:30 p.m. Come hear from the project team about the project schedule, progress on the environmental process, and responses to comments received from the community.
Three pedestrians have been killed while crossing the street in the city since the beginning of this year. Even when walking on sidewalks along well illuminated roads or crossing the street using a crosswalk, pedestrians need to take extreme care when crossing the road especially those with heavy traffic and multiple lanes.
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.
