These two freeways not only connect Placer’s communities, but also serve as key freight routes. $4.7 million dollars of goods pass through this interchange every hour.
Today, the 80/65 interchange is congested in every direction nearly all day. This congestion already costs residents too much time, and it will only get worse as planned developments continue to grow Placer’s communities.
After years of working with community members, local leaders, and state officials, PCTPA has developed a new design to improve the 80/65 interchange. The design would add much needed lanes and reconfigure the ramps to improve safety.
Changing political priorities have limited state funding for roadway expansion projects like the 80/65 Interchange Improvement Project. After scraping together every available dollar, PCTPA could only construct Phase 1 of this project, which adds a third lane to the bridge on northbound Highway 65. Without construction of the later phases, this improvement will do little to address congestion at the interchange.
Without a local funding source, later phases of the project will remain on the shelf and Placer residents will still be stuck in traffic at the interchange.
ALL MEETINGS ARE FROM 4:30pm - 6:30pm PST
