Special projects 

2021 Levee Improvement Work (Contract 2)

USACE is planning to construct additional levee seepage improvements in 2021 in the lower Little Pocket, upper Pocket/Greenhaven, and adjacent to Highway 50 at Broadway. It is anticipated that Zacharias Park will be closed for most of 2021. Additionally, a portion of the northern overflow parking lot at Miller Park will be utilized as staging without any impact to boat launch access. The bicycle trail between Broadway up to the south end of the Old Sacramento Promenade will be closed. USACE is planning to award the 2021 levee construction contract in early 2021. Additional details will be available at that time. Pre-construction activities that include the relocation of existing utilities and removing vegetation located directly in the construction footprint is anticipated to occur between December 2020 – April 2021.
