Old Town Streetscape Improvements

Old Town Streetscape Improvements - Phase 2

Project Overview
The project will improve Elk Grove Boulevard between School Street and Waterman Road by adding buffered Class 2 bike lanes, landscaped property frontages, continuous sidewalks, pedestrian crossings with rectangular rapid flashing beacons, enhanced bus shelters, drainage improvements, and pavement rehabilitation. Overhead utility lines will be placed underground as well, making the corridor much more pedestrian friendly.

Old Town Streetscape Improvements

The City of Elk Grove has received grant funding for preliminary engineering and environmental clearance from the Sacramento Area Council of Governments for preliminary engineering and environmental studies for the improvements. The City was also recently awarded $4 million in construction funds as a part of SACOG’s Community Design Funding Program.

The existing roadway provides one traffic lane in each direction with varying shoulder widths and intermittent curb, gutter and sidewalk. Existing on street parking is limited to areas with wider shoulders and is sporadic throughout the project limits. The existing intersections within the improvement limits are unsignalized.

Current Status
The project received environmental clearance in 2017 and has proceeded to the final design stage. Coordination is underway with utility companies to underground service lines ahead of project construction. Final design is expected to be completed in 2019, with construction beginning in 2020.

Community Outreach
The City and consultants from Dokken Engineering have worked with adjacent property and business owners to identify potential impacts to each property as a result of the project. The City also has coordinated closely with a stakeholder committee to review draft alternatives before the project progressed into final design. The stakeholder committee included representatives from the Old Town Foundation, the Elk Grove Historic Preservation Committee, the Elk Grove Trails Committee, the Chamber of Commerce, and the Elk Grove Disability Advisory Committee.

As the project moves through the final design phase, additional community and stakeholder outreach will take place. Once final design is received from SMUD, City staff will return to each property owner to articulate the utility impacts to each parcel.  This website will be updated as events are planned.
