The Northgate Blvd. Transportation Plan was presented to City Council on February 21, 2023 for final approval. This document sets the vision for future transportation investments on the corridor.

After 2-years of work, this Plan incorporates technical analysis, community input, and best practices in roadway safety and design.

The next step is to secure funding for preliminary design and environmental clearance which provides more details. 

Final Northgate Blvd. Transportation Plan


Project Overview

Northgate Blvd. from Interstate 80 to Del Paso Blvd is home to a vibrant and diverse mix of businesses and community services. The corridor is surrounded by neighborhoods with a mix of housing types. These neighborhoods, and the corridor itself, were established during the 1920's when agriculture and the railroad were the economic foundation of the Sacramento area. There is an opportunity now to modernize the corridor to meet today’s safety and mobility needs.

Beginning in June 2021, the City will lead a comprehensive planning effort to identify community values and needs. Based on community consultation throughout the project, technical analysis, and best practices in roadway safety and design, the plan will identify an implementable vision for the corridor. The expected process includes the following steps:
