Roseville will be rehabilitating Washington Boulevard from Oak Street to Elefa Street to improve the quality of the roadway. Streets will be open to vehicle traffic. However, there will be temporary lane closures while work is underway, which may result in traffic delays. Construction is scheduled 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. Consistent with the Downtown Specific Plan, the project includes converting Linda Drive to a one-way street adjacent to the future fire station. During construction, the narrowing of Linda Drive may extend from Lincoln Street to Jefferson Street. Construction on the project is expected through December 2015.
On July 24, the Draft Environmental Impact Report/Environmental Assessment for Capitol Corridor Joint Power Authority's proposed Third Track Project will be released for a 50-day public review period. Comments and suggestions will be invited from all interested parties beginning July 24 through 5:00 p.m. September 10. Learn more by attending a public meeting or participating in a convenient online meeting that will be available 24 hours a day.
Construction of the Fiddyment Ranch phase 2 trail project is occurring June through August.

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.
