Preparation work to begin 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.

When completed, it 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. 

Planned parking lot and playground closures for the week of February 19-23 have been postponed. New dates will be announced.  

In preparation for construction, the “castle playground” at Royer Park will be closed Monday, February 19 - Thursday, February 22.

Additionally, the Royer Park parking lot will be closed Monday, February 19 - Friday, February 23.


Closures are necessary as we remove selected trees. 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.
