Construction on the 3.5 mile Cosumnes River Boulevard (CRB) Extension Project continues through the summer, and once completed, will provide a new road extension from Franklin Boulevard west to Freeport Boulevard, and access to the planned Delta Shores community, a public-private partnership with the City and property owner M&H Realty Partners.
As part of the Delta Shores project, the City began construction work on a new waterline replacement along Freeport Boulevard. The first and second stage of the waterline replacement has been completed ahead of schedule, and Stage 3 began July 24. During Stage 3—scheduled for completion by September 15—crews will be working between Conlin Park and the I-5 overcrossing. Those wishing to access Verizon, Conlin Park, or the water tank during this timeframe can do so via the CRB interchange, and north on Freeport Boulevard.
In an effort to minimize inconvenience, the city divided the project into three stages. See the map below for a complete schedule.
Freeport Boulevard will still be closed to vehicle through traffic from Meadowview Road to the new CRB interchange. However, the new interchange will help ease local travel around the waterline construction. The city opened the newly constructed I-5 interchange, one mile south of Meadowview Road, in May 2015.
