Community invited to view draft designs for improvements along Freeport and Northgate boulevards

The City of Sacramento is continuing to connect with residents to address challenges for people driving, walking and biking along two major transportation corridors.

Over the past year, City staff have engaged with residents, business owners and other community members about Northgate and Freeport boulevards through one-on-one conversations, community events, virtual workshops and online surveys.

Staff now are ready to unveil draft design concepts for public input at virtual workshops and in-person open houses.

“The design concepts developed build upon previous community engagement, but with more feedback we can make sure we are delivering the best possible plans,” said Leslie Mancebo, senior transportation planner and project manager for both plans. “Community engagement is still critical to make sure our draft meets the community needs.”

Residents can register online for the evening virtual workshop on Oct. 26 or stop by one of the open houses anytime from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Oct. 22 and 29.

Staff kicked off both projects in June 2021, leading a comprehensive planning effort to enhance transportation safety, improve mobility and support economic development along both corridors.
