I-80 / Highway 65 Improvements

Upgrading the Heart of South Placer's Transportation Network

The Interstate 80 and Highway 65 interchange serves as a vital connection for Placer County, connecting communities and facilitating the movement of goods. Over $4.7 million worth of goods pass through this interchange every hour.

Addressing Congestion and Future Growth

Unfortunately, the current configuration of the 80/65 interchange is unable to meet the present and future needs of Placer County. Congestion plagues the interchange throughout the day, causing delays for residents. As our communities continue to grow, this problem will only worsen.

PCTPA's Plan for a Forward-Looking Interchange

Working closely with community members, local leaders, and state officials, PCTPA has developed an innovative design to enhance the 80/65 interchange. This plan includes additional lanes and improved ramp configurations to enhance safety.

Securing Sufficient Funding for the Full Project

Unfortunately, limited state funding for roadway expansions has hindered the progress of the 80/65 Interchange Improvement Project. Despite our efforts to allocate every available dollar, only Phase 1, which adds a third lane to the northbound Highway 65 bridge, has been completed. To truly address congestion at the interchange, funding is desperately needed for the later phases.

Introducing a Local Funding Solution

Placer County requires a local funding source to ensure the completion of the entire 80/65 Interchange Improvement Project. With the necessary funding, we can move forward and alleviate traffic congestion for Placer County residents.

We need your support to improve transportation in Placer County. Join us in advocating for the full completion of the 80/65 Interchange Improvement Project by attending our public meetings and sharing your feedback. Together, we can create a better future for transportation in our community.
