Roseville City Council voted to approve the addition of the Game Day Express bus service from Roseville to Sacramento Kings games at their Wednesday, September 7 meeting. The Game Day Express will provide direct Roseville Transit routes for area fans to travel from Roseville to home games at the new Golden 1 Center in downtown Sacramento.
At its September 7 meeting, the Roseville City Council approved the overall funding required for the Oak Street Parking Facility project. This approval cleared the way for construction to begin. The contractor is scheduled to install construction fencing around the project perimeter on September 12.
The project, which is expected to take 10 months to complete, will initially involve demolition, grading, and utility work. The actual structure will begin to take shape when concrete pours start in late October/early November.
Updated 9/21/16: Resurfacing is underway on residential streets in the West Park and Foothills/Junction neighborhoods. Regular roadway maintenance reduces the need for major costly street repairs in the future by protecting Roseville streets.
Nighttime road resurfacing began Tuesday, August 23 on Douglas Boulevard between North Sunrise Avenue and Sierra Gardens Drive. Work will take place weekdays 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. and last approximately four weeks. One travel lane in each direction will be open during construction hours.
Updated 8/3/16: Road resurfacing around Roseville is underway, 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.
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.
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.
