Over two years, PCTPA worked with community member and local leaders to identify transportation priorities in Placer County. With this input, PCTPA developed a draft plan to protect Placer’s quality of life by making key transportation investments.
Because most 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.
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.
Total Project Improvement Cost: $395 million
Estimated Funding from Other Sources: $100 million
Local Match Contribution: $295 million
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.
Total Project Improvement Cost: $115 million
Estimated Funding from Other Sources: $70 million
Local Match Contribution: $45 million
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.
Total Project Improvement Cost: $595 million
Estimated Funding from Other Sources: $570 million
Local Match Contribution: $45 million
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.
Total Project Improvement Cost: $409 million
Estimated Funding from Other Sources: $91 million
Local Match Contribution: $318 million
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.
The transportation Investment Plan also includes projects to improve Dial-A-Ride buses for seniors and the disabled, and investments in sidewalks and bike lanes to ensure children can get to school safely. These alternative forms of transportation protect the quality of life for all Placer residents.
