COSUMNES RIVER BLVD EXTENSION AND INTERCHANGE AT INTERSTATE 5
Figure 1 - March 2015
The project will construct a new interchange at Cosumnes River Boulevard at I-5 located 1 mile south of Meadowview Road and construct a new 4 to 6 lane road extension of Cosumnes River Boulevard from Franklin Boulevard west to Freeport Boulevard.
The interchange will improve east-west mobility for motorists and bicyclists, reduce traffic congestion along Mack Road and promote economic development by creating new access to 800 vacant acres of the Delta Shores development site.
Costs and Funding
The estimated total project cost is $95 million. Funding is provided by Measure A (1/2 cent sales tax), state, federal and private developer funds.
The new interchange on I-5, just one mile south of Meadowview Road was completed and opened to traffic in May 2015 (see Traffic Movement Map). The bridge over Morrison Creek/Union Pacific Railroad is also complete. The Cosumnes River Boulevard road extension between Franklin Boulevard and Freeport Boulevard is scheduled to be open for traffic by mid-December 2015.
Update on Waterline Replacement on Freeport Boulevard:
The City completed the replacement of the waterline and reopened Freeport Boulevard to thru traffic on September 15, 2015. Over the next two weeks, crews will be onsite finalizing roadway improvements within the corridor. Freeport Boulevard will remain open for these final activities, however drivers may experience minimal travel delays.
Over the coming weeks, crews will continue work on the CRB extension connecting the new and open interchange at I-5 to Franklin Boulevard.
