Arterial Road Rehabilitation

Project Purpose and Overview

The purpose of this project is to rehabilitate or repave portions of Waterman Road and Elk Grove Florin Road while also adding class II (on-street) bike lanes. The City will design and construct a mid-block pedestrian crossing with a rectangular rapid flashing beacon along Elk Grove-Florin Road north of Valley Oak Lane. The project also includes upgrading curb ramps to Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards. Future connectivity will be made possible along Waterman Road for the City's bike lane network, while reducing annual pavement maintenance costs, extending the life of the road pavement, and improving ride quality.

Current Status

On May 25, 2022, the City Council adopted a resolution authorizing the City Manager to execute a construction contract with George Reed, Inc.  On June 9, 2022, the City executed the construction contract with George Reed, Inc.  It is anticipated that the Contractor will be working from July 2022 through January 2023.   

During construction, the Contractor will provide funding identification signs and necessary traffic controls to ensure traffic impacts are minimized.  The Contractor will also provide information on traffic delays and alternate routes, necessary driveway closures, temporary relocation of bus stops, adjustment of utilities, and waste pick up. 

There will be a full closure of sections of Waterman Road during the progress of the work.  These will be phased to minimize impacts to the motoring public.  Appropriate signs, detours, and advance notifications will be provided by the Contractor.
