Phase 1 construction anticipated in 2020

The first phase of Washington Boulevard/Andora Widening Project construction is projected to begin in 2020. The California Transportation Commission unanimously approved changes to phase 1 plans for the project. Valuable public feedback was shared with the commission at its October meeting.

Phase 1 construction improvements include:
  • Installing a new traffic signal at the intersection of Washington Boulevard and Kaseberg Drive;

  • Widening Washington Boulevard from two to four lanes between Sawtell Road and Kaseberg Drive, as well as between Diamond Oaks Road and Pleasant Grove Boulevard;

  • Improving signalized intersections along Washington Boulevard;

  • Constructing a new multi-use trail long the east side of Washington Boulevard, from Pleasant Grove Boulevard to All America City Boulevard; and

  • Enhancing the current bicycle and pedestrian railroad under-crossing.
Phase 1 of work is fully funded and will be paid for with a $2.2 million California Transportation Commission Active Transportation grant, $1.1 million in state Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality program funds, and $2 million in local funding from the City of Roseville. 

Future phase 2 updates

The total cost of phase 2 requires approximately $30 million. A significant portion of this amount includes building a temporary shoofly to allow continued rail operations during construction of a new wider railroad bridge.

Despite applying for a variety of competitive state and federal funds, the necessary funding is not yet available for phase 2. 

 Planned phase 2 improvements include: 
  • Widening Washington Boulevard from two to four lanes, between Kaseberg Drive and Diamond Oaks Road; and

  • Replacing the existing Union Pacific Railroad Andora bridge with a new wider bridge.

California Transportation Commission approval

In order to move forward with phase 1 construction, community support was necessary. The City was awarded an Active Transportation grant by the California Transportation Commission (CTC) to partially fund the project's pedestrian and bike improvements.

Because the scope of phase 1 was revised to include the traffic signal and pathway south of Sawtell Road, the CTC wanted to know whether the public supported these enhancements.

The CTC considered the expanded project scope, along with community input from the public meeting, online survey, and other correspondence, and voted at the October 2019 meeting to approve the changes. Phase 1 construction is anticipated to begin in 2020.

About the Project

As part of the City of Roseville’s Traffic Master Plan, the City will be widening Washington Boulevard from Sawtell Road to Pleasant Grove Boulevard to improve traffic circulation and pedestrian traffic through the area.

The City is currently working on the design for the Washington/Andora Widening Project, which includes widening approximately one mile of Washington Boulevard from two to four lanes to better accommodate existing and future traffic volumes. Currently approximately 18,000 vehicles and 36 trains per day travel through this location. Improvements will enhance accessibility for motorists, pedestrians, and cyclists along Washington Boulevard and nearby intersections. The project also includes the replacement and widening of the Union Pacific Railroad's Andora Bridge which crosses over Washington Boulevard.

This project includes a comprehensive public engagement effort which involves meeting with local businesses, residents, and schools.
