New interchange at I-5 and Cosumnes River Boulevard Extension  (Between Pocket Road/Meadowview Boulevard Exit and Laguna Boulevard Exit off I-5)

 When

 June 1 to September 15

 Where

 One mile south of Meadowview Road

 Details

 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 from Meadowview Road to the new Cosumnes River Boulevard (CRB) interchange. Bicyclists and pedestrians allowed. See below.

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.

Bicycle and Pedestrian Access

After hearing from the bicycling community, the City devised a plan that will allow bicyclists to travel through the work area by way of flaggers onsite from 7 a.m. until work concludes each day at 3:30 p.m. During these hours, work will need to stop for each bicyclist. Bicyclists will need to dismount their bike and walk through the construction zone as there will be open trenches and heavy equipment. During off-work hours (early mornings, evenings and weekends), bicyclists will have a path between five and 12-feet wide along the fenced trench available for travel.
