Community invited to engage in the I Street Bridge Replacement Project process

Join the Cities of Sacramento and West Sacramento on Thursday, October 26 for an update on the I street Bridge Replacement project. The meeting, which will be held at the Stanford Gallery at 111 I Street, will highlight important elements of the Draft Environmental Impact Report and next steps in the future design and construction phase.

Community members are encouraged to stop by at their convenience any time between 5 and 6:30 p.m. to share comments and review the Draft Environmental Impact Report. As part of the update, attendees can expect to hear more about the design process and the future solicitation of design firms. The official request for proposals is expected to be released some time in December.

“This is an exciting time for our cities,” said Jesse Gothan, Project Manager for the City of Sacramento. “The new I Street Bridge will enhance access across the Sacramento River for bicyclists and pedestrians, and also serve the needs of motorists.”

“The last bridge built between our two cities was the Tower Bridge in 1934,” said City of West Sacramento Senior Transportation Planner Jason McCoy.  “The release of the draft environmental document is the next step in the right direction, and we encourage residents from both Sacramento and West Sacramento to learn about the project and provide their input at this upcoming community meeting.”

Community members can review the draft environmental document on the City’s website.
