Transportation Investment Plan

A Plan To Keep Placer Moving

Over two years, PCTPA worked with community member and local leaders to identify transportation priorities in South Placer County. With this input, PCTPA developed a draft plan to protect South Placer’s quality of life by making key transportation investments.

Major Highway Projects

Because most South Placer residents rely on our system of freeways and roads, the transportation plan allocates the largest share of funds expanding this system. Key projects like the Interstate 80 Highway 65 Interchange Improvement Project and the 65 Widening Project will relieve congestion and make our freeways safer.

I-80 / Highway 65 Interchange Improvements

$395 Million Needed
Description
The Numbers

Phase 1 is under construction, but the interchange needs three more phases of improvements. When complete, this reconfiguration will dramatically improve traffic flow and safety.

Highway 65 Widening

$115 Million Needed
Description
The Numbers

Despite rapid growth in South Placer, Highway 65 hasn’t been expanded since the 1990’s. This project would widen Highway 65 in both directions from Lincoln to I-80, relieving congestion.

Placer Parkway

Description
The Numbers

The Placer Parkway is to be an approximate 15-mile long, high-speed transportation facility, which will connect State Route (SR) 65 in western Placer County to SR 70/99 in south Sutter County. It will link existing and planned development near some of the region’s fastest growing communities while improving access to the I-5 corridor, downtown Sacramento, and the Sacramento International Airport.

Other Major Highway Projects

Description
The Numbers

The Keep Placer Moving transportation plan also includes projects to reduce congestion on local roads, improve emergency responder access, expand transit for seniors and people with disabilities, add sidewalks and trails, and provide Safe Routes to School for children.

Local Streets and Roads Projects

While there are state taxes to pay for potholes and road repair, there is not enough funding to build and expand roads. The plan makes adding new local roads and expanding existing roads a priority so that South Placer’s communities are relieved of gridlock and can safely accommodate planned growth.
