Progress is continuing on one of the largest public works projects in City history, the new I-5 Interchange and Cosumnes River Boulevard Extension. These recent photos provide a look at the site. Linking Interstate I-5 and Route 99 east together, this project will relieve traffic congestion and decrease travel time. In addition to improving transportation, the project will spur economic development through construction of a regional park, a retail center, and 5,000 new housing units. Once a mere concept, the project has made remarkable progress in the last 6 months.
The new interchange is expected to be completed by fall of 2014, with the completion of the entire road extension to follow.
