Project Overview

The City of Sacramento will be improving safety for those walking, biking, taking transit and driving, as well as improving connectivity for walking and biking with the Fruitridge Road Improvements Project. This project is located on Fruitridge Road between 65th Street and Power Inn Road and aims to safely accommodate all modes of travel through pavement rehabilitation, continuous bike lanes, reconstructing curb ramps, upgrading signal equipment, and other improvements. It will also increase accessibility by providing ADA-compliant curb ramps.

Existing Conditions

Fruitridge Road is an east-west arterial in South Sacramento with 4 vehicle lanes, a two-way left-turn lane, and segments of raised median island. There are intermittent segments of narrow bike lanes. The roadway does not have sufficient width for all of the following arrangements:

  • Four travel lanes
  • A center turn lane/median island
  • Consistent City-standard bike lanes

Because of the corridor constraints, this project will evaluate a lane reduction as an option to reallocate roadway width to better accommodate bicyclists and transit and to improve several crossings for pedestrians.

Project Benefits

The Fruitridge Road Improvements Project will make several improvements that will benefit the community including:

  • Improved walking, biking, and transit access along Fruitridge Road
  • Safety improvements for people walking, biking, and driving
  • Provide connections to existing and future bikeways

Project Map

Project limits are along Fruitridge Road from 65th Street Expressway to Power Inn Road.

Within these limits are 6 traffic signals and 14 bus stops.


The City was awarded federal funding for the complete street design and reconstruction on Fruitridge Road.
