NEW INTERCHANGE AT I-5 AND COSUMNES RIVER BOULEVARD EXTENSION (Between Pocket Road/Meadowview Boulevard Exit and Laguna Boulevard Exit off I-5)


Prior to Monday morning commute on May 5


One mile south of Meadowview Road


The City of Sacramento is announcing the opening of a new interchange on I-5. The new interchange is a public-private partnership between the City of Sacramento and the Delta Shores developers in South Sacramento. The completion of the interchange is a major step towards the completion of the larger Cosumnes River Boulevard Extension and Interchange Project. However, the 3.5 mile roadway extension between Franklin Boulevard and Freeport Boulevard remains under construction. Until that time, estimated for the Fall, motorists will be able to enter and exit I-5 by way of the new interchange at Freeport Boulevard, but will not be able to head east along the new extension.

See the map of the current vehicle access.  See Project Website

Freeport Road Closures from June 1 to September 15, 2015

 As part of the Cosumnes River Boulevard Extension Project and to support the Delta Shores development adjacent to the project, the City will begin replacement of a new waterline on Freeport Boulevard on June 1, 2015.

 Construction is slated to last approximately three months and be complete by September 15, 2015. During this time, Freeport Boulevard will be closed to through traffic, including bicycles, from Meadowview Road to the new Cosumnes River Boulevard (CRB) interchange.

To minimize inconvenience and allow access to all driveways as well as the Bill Conlin Youth Sports Complex and dog park within the project area, the work will be performed in three stages. Local traffic will be able to access properties by utilizing the driving instructions found on the closure map.
