The City of Sacramento is announcing the opening of a new interchange on I-5, just one mile south of Meadowview Boulevard beginning prior to the morning commute on Monday, May 4.
The new interchange is a public-private partnership between the City of Sacramento and the Delta Shores developers in South Sacramento. M&H Realty Partners, the developer of the master-planned community, will begin construction on their 1.3 million square foot regional shopping center as the cornerstone of Delta Shores community. The opening of the interchange provides the initial I-5 access for the regional shopping center.
The milestone is a major step toward completion of the larger Cosumnes River Boulevard Extension and Interchange Project. However, the 3.5 mile roadway extension between Franklin and Freeport boulevards remains under construction. Until that time, estimated for the fall, motorists will be able to enter and exit I-5 by way of the new interchange at Freeport Boulevard but will not be able to head east along the new extension. See the map of current vehicle access.
Water line replacement to get underway on Freeport Boulevard
Following the opening of the interchange on May 4, the City’s contractor will begin work on the construction of a new waterline that runs north and south on Freeport Boulevard. Waterline construction is required for the Delta Shores development.
To minimize inconvenience during the waterline replacement, the City plans to divide the project into three stages in order to maintain access to all driveways fronting Freeport Boulevard. The newly opened interchange will ease local travel around the waterline construction, slated to last approximately two months.
See the Cosumnes River Boulevard Extension and Interchange webpage for more information about the entire project.
