The American Public Works Association (APWA) recently recognized the City of Roseville with Project of the Year award in the roadway category for the roundabout at Oak Street and Washington Boulevard. Previously, this intersection had one of the highest accident rates for a signalized intersection in Roseville. Since the intersection switched from traffic signals to a roundabout, there have been significant safety improvements for motorists and pedestrians.
The City of Roseville will be constructing an asphalt parking lot where the existing Roseville Aquatics Complex overflow gravel parking lot is located, at the corner of McAnally and Woodcreek Oaks. Construction is scheduled to start at the beginning of September and last through October. Work hours will be weekdays, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Work will be avoided in the road and intersection during student arrival and departure times to prevent traffic impacts.
Resurfacing is scheduled to begin August 10 for residential streets in the Foothills/Junction, Woodcreek Oaks, 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. Please note: residents will always be provided access in and out of neighborhoods.
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.
