Preparation work begins on the Downtown Bridges & Trail Project

Updated February 08, 2018
Improved biking and walking access is coming to Downtown Roseville. Construction of the Downtown Bridges & Trail Project is anticipated to start this spring.

In preparation for construction, tree removal on the creek banks will continue intermittently during the week of Monday, March 5, weather permitting. Royer Park remains open to the public.

As with all City construction projects, tree removals are carefully considered and follow environmental requirements. The project will also add 36 trees. All work will be done during the daytime, but you can expect some equipment noise in the area. 

When completed, the project will make the final connection in a 6 mile off-street trail from Sierra College Boulevard to Darling Way. You’ll see the Rube Nelson “Icehouse” Bridge refurbished, and two new pedestrian bridges will make it easy to cross Dry Creek between Royer Park and the Vernon Street Town Square and Downtown Library.
