Public meeting set for Folsom widening project

The city of Sacramento will hold a public meeting about the Folsom Boulevard Widening and Ramona Avenue Extension Project from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., Wednesday, Sept. 22 in the Alumni Center.

The project is intended to improve traffic flow and make the area more accessible for pedestrians and bicyclists. It involves widening Folsom Blvd. from two to four lanes, changes to Ramona Ave., improving various intersections and connections, landscaping, adding sidewalks and bicycle lanes, and more.

The preliminary studies will be completed this winter and an environmental impact report should be done by fall 2006. Work is expected to begin in summer 2008, if funding is available.

Members of the project team will be on hand for the meeting, which is designed to gather public input while sharing information.

For more information, or to be added to the project mailing list, contact Amy Williams at 808-7523 or aewilliams@cityofsacramento.org
