2022 Sacramento River East Levee Improvements – Contract 3 (Between Zacharias Park and Garcia Bend Park)

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) is planning to construct levee seepage and stability improvements in the Pocket/Greenhaven area in 2022. Work will occur along the Sacramento River east levee between Zacharias Park and Garcia Bend Park. Zacharias Park is being used as a staging area and will remain closed through 2022.  Garcia Bend Park and the boat launch facility will remain open and available for public use, however the western portion of the parking lot will be used as a project staging area. The eastern portion of the parking lot will remain open and available for public use.

Pre-construction activities that include the relocation of existing utilities and removing vegetation located directly in the construction footprint will occur between December 2021 – April 2022. Major levee construction activity is anticipated to occur between April 2022 – November 2022.

2022 Lower American River Erosion Protection Construction – Access at Glenn Hall Park
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) will be constructing river bank erosion protection measures along the Lower American River levee between CSUS and Glenn Hall Park in 2022. The work will require the use of a limited portion of Glenn Hall Park for access onto the levee. The park, including the soccer/softball field and public pool, will remain open and available to the public throughout construction. USACE will be constructing a temporary access road that will necessitate the closure of the eastern side of the Glenn Hall Park parking lot and the use of a strip of grass area just west of the soccer field, approximately 16’-20’ in width from the edge of the existing sidewalk. The temporary access road will be fenced and flaggers will be present when construction traffic is present. Access into and use of the western side of the parking lot will remain available.

Levee pre-construction activity, including vegetation removal is anticipated to occur between January 26, 2022 – March 1, 2022, followed by river bank erosion protection construction starting in late spring or early summer 2022.
