Traffic is one of the topics we hear most about from you. There is a plan to raise about $1.6 billion to fund highway projects, public transit expansion, local street maintenance and improvements including Highway 65 widening and the Highway 65 / I-80 interchange.

You are invited to review and provide comments on the 2016 City of Roseville Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan. Input on the plan can be submitted Wednesday, July 27 through Friday, August 19, 2016.

By having a plan in place, Roseville is eligible for federal pre-disaster and post-disaster assistance.
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.

Roads are prioritized based on their pavement quality, age and amount of traffic.

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.
