WHAT IS THE PROPOSED PROJECT ALTERNATIVE ?
The interchange alternative shown below includes a large bridge structure across U.S. Highway 50. The eastbound ramps connect to the bridge with a 4-way signalized intersection and the westbound ramps connect with a signalized ‘T’ intersection. The bridge structure includes a wide median to facilitate truck turning movements.

The logical terminus for Ranch Cordova Parkway was assumed to be White Rock Road
under 2010 conditions and Easton Valley Parkway under 2030 conditions.

 

RANCHO CORDOVA PARKWAY – ONE OF MANY PROJECTS FOR TRAFFIC CONGESTION RELIEF
The 50 Corridor Mobility Partnership (a cooperative effort by the Counties of Sacramento and El Dorado, cities of Rancho Cordova and Folsom, and major private landowners) developed a list of key projects throughout the Highway 50 Corridor that will relieve traffic congestion. Their recommendations provide system-wide projects that will improve mobility as part of a regional solution.

Their plan was awarded a SACOG Salutes Planning Award in 2006 for their innovative approach. In addition, the Folsom and Rancho Cordova City Councils, El Dorado and Sacramento County Boards of Supervisors in 2006 all unanimously approved resolutions expressing support for the public-private planning effort. The Partnership’s study area is defined roughly by Bradshaw Road on the west, American River on the north, El Dorado Hills on the east, and Jackson Highway on the south.

The Rancho Cordova Parkway Interchange project was identified as one of the projects on the short term list. For more information about the 50 Corridor Mobility Partnership visit www.50mobility.com.
