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.
With other funding being more and more difficult to obtain, a ballot measure to increase retail sales tax by a half percent to raise funds for transportation improvements in Placer County was placed on the November 8, 2016, presidential general election ballot by the Placer County Board of Supervisors.
It will be a busy couple years for city building projects in Downtown Roseville. All of the projects are part of the Downtown Specific Plan designed through a community visioning process in 2009. The highly popular Vernon Street Town Square and roundabout at Washington Boulevard and Oak Street are examples of projects already completed in accordance with the plan.
Current projects include an office building at 316 Vernon Street, the Oak Street Parking facility, a new downtown Fire Station, three pedestrian bridges and bike trail connections through downtown.
You may have seen the friendly faces of Bike/Walk Ambassadors on Roseville trails. This program to encourage safe biking and walking is expanding. Bike/Walk Ambassadors will now be around schools handing out rewards to students who are practicing safe biking and walking habits.
The Dry Creek Greenway Multi-Use Trail Project is a planned 4-mile long trail along Dry, Cirby and Linda Creeks. Environmental studies are continuing for the project. The results of the environmental studies will be incorporated into a Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR). Depending on the continued progress of the environmental studies, the current schedule anticipates that the Draft EIR would be available for public review in early 2016.
