Waterman Rd. Rehab & Bike Lanes/Bond to Sheldon

Project Overview

This project will reconstruct Waterman Road between Sheldon Road and Bond Road.  The existing number of lanes will be perpetuated with the reconstruction (ie....one lane in each direction).  Standard shoulder widths will be added which will also function as bike lanes.  A portion of the reconstruction is within the Rural Roads boundary and as such, the roadway will be reconstructed to meet the Rural Roads Standards.


In 2014 the City of Elk Grove applied for and received a Regional Transportation Improvement grant funds from the Sacramento Area Council of Governments (SACOG) in the amount of $2.9 million. Since this project received Regional Surface Transportation Program funds, which include Federal funds, it must comply with Caltrans and FHWA requirements.

Current Activities

The preliminary designs are complete.  Environmental surveys, geotechnical field explorations, and topographic surveys were completed in the summer of 2016.  Work on the environmental document and technical studies is ongoing.
