Alternative 2: I-80 / SR 65 Interchange Improvements Project

The proposed I-80 / SR 65 Interchange Improvements Project design will add the capacity to eliminate existing and future traffic backups, including a system to eliminate weaving movements on the I-80 eastbound approach and still keep the interchange at Taylor Road open, while still getting more than 210,000 vehicles (and growing) through this area daily, while meeting all the state and federal requirements for interstate highways.  It’s a comprehensive design and will require several phases to fully implement.

The video below shows how the approved alternative, known as Alternative 2 (Collector-Distributor System Ramps), will operate when fully completed under future year 2040 peak traffic conditions.  The video begins at the Eureka Road/Atlantic Street interchange and travels along eastbound I-80 towards SR 65, then continues on northbound SR 65 to the Galleria Boulevard/Stanford Ranch Road interchange.

I-80 / SR 65 Interchange Improvements Project

The I-80 / SR 65 interchange was constructed back in the mid-1980’s.  Since then, the population of Placer County has grown exponentially.  Today the interchange is one of the most congested corridors in the region.

Watch the video to see how PCTPA plans to relieve traffic congestion and improve safety through the I-80 / SR 65 Interchange Improvements project.  More information about the project is available at www.8065interchange.org, and you can visit www.KeepPlacerMoving.com for information about other key projects that would #KeepPlacerMoving.

I-80-Aux-Lanes-Logo

I-80 Auxiliary Lanes Project

The I-80 Auxiliary Lanes project is proposing improvements to eastbound I-80 between SR 65 and Rocklin Road, and westbound I-80 between Douglas Boulevard and Riverside Avenue. The project would reduce congestion and improve safety on I-80 with the addition of auxiliary lanes and/or an additional lane of traffic.

PCTPA is hosting a community meeting on WeI 80 Aux Photodnesday, January 27 at 9:00am at the Placer County Community Development Resource Agency, located at 3091 County Center Drive in Auburn.  Community members are invited to drop in at their convenience to learn more about the project, ask questions, and provide feedback.

Caltrans and PCTPA have prepared a proposed Mitigated Negative Declaration and Initial Study for the project.  The project documents are available for review online here.  Additionally, hard copies are available on weekdays from 8:00am-5:00 pm between January 11 and February 11, 2016 at:

I-80 Auxiliary Lanes

I-80 Aux Lanes-Logo Update croppedThe final environmental document for the I-80 Auxiliary Lanes project was approved in October 2016 and Caltrans has signed off on the proposed improvements. The project will construct a continuous 5th lane on westbound I-80 between Douglas Boulevard and Riverside Avenue, and an auxiliary lane on eastbound I-80 between SR 65 and Rocklin Road.

The final Mitigated Negative Declaration and Initial Study, along with other project documents are available for download.

A public meeting for the draft environmental document for this project was held at the PCTPA Board Meeting on January 27, 2016 at the Placer County Community Development Resource Agency, 3091 County Center Drive, Auburn, CA. A Public Notice was published in the Auburn Journal, Roseville Press Tribune, and Placer Hearald and is available for download.

The presentation from the PCTPA January 27, 2016 Board Meeting is also available for download.

A public meeting for the preferred alternative for this project was held at the PCTPA Board Meting on April 27, 2016 at the Placer County Board of Supervisors Chambers, 175 Fulweiler Avenue, Auburn, CA. The presentation from the PCTPA April 27, 2106 Board meeting is available for download.

 

The project includes two locations on Interstate 80 (I-80):

  • Location 1: Eastbound from State Route 65 (SR 65) to Rocklin Road
  • Location 2: Westbound from Douglas Boulevard to Riverside Avenue

The proposed project would reduce congestion and improve safety on I-80. The proposed project would construct the following improvements:

  • An I-80 eastbound auxiliary lane is proposed to be constructed between the existing SR 65 eastbound on-ramp and the existing Rocklin Road eastbound off- ramp.
  • The existing I-80 eastbound one-lane off-ramp at Rocklin Road will be widened to a two-lane off-ramp. The two-lane off-ramp will transition into the existing three-lane portion of the off-ramp.
  • The existing 5th lane on I-80 westbound will extend past the existing Douglas Boulevard off-ramp through the Riverside Avenue interchange to the existing five lanes, creating a continuous five lanes on westbound I-80 from east of Douglas Boulevard to west of Riverside Avenue.
  • The existing I-80 westbound two-lane off-ramp at Douglas Boulevard will be converted to a one-lane off-ramp to provide space for the new 5th lane.

The video below shows Year 2020 conditions during the morning for the proposed 5th lane improvements and existing conditions for I-80 Westbound between Douglas Boulevard and Riverside Avenue (Location 2). The video begins at the Douglas Boulevard interchange and travels along westbound I-80 to the Riverside Avenue interchange.

The I-80 Auxiliary Lanes project improvements are estimated to cost $18 million. Both state and federal environmental approvals were received in October 2016. The next step is to move into the design phase before construction can begin. Both the design and construction phases are dependent on funding being available. The project environmental document, approved in October 2016, involved the following key steps:

placer_parkway_corridor

Placer Parkway

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.
