The City of Elk Grove has plans for improvements to what has become a dangerous stretch of Grantline Road, between Waterman Road and Bradshaw Road. That portion of the road way has been the scene of several accidents in the past few years, including a fatal accident in 2017.
The issues stem from Grantline being a heavily traveled, two lane road, no turns lanes. The intersections of Bradshaw and Grantline and Mosher and Grantline seen the most accidents. A new subdivision between the two streets has added more traffic and an additional turn at Cote D’Or.
Elk Grove Laguna News contacted Bob Murdoch, the head of the city’s public works department regarding future improvements to the roadway. Murdoch said that improvements are coming in 2020. Grantline will be widened to four lanes, two in each direction, from Waterman to Bradshaw.
The Bradshaw/Grantline intersection will be realigned to form a “T” intersection. Currently Bradshaw connects to Grantline at an angle that limits visibility. The intersection will have a traffic signal.
A signal will also be added to the the intersection of Grantline and Mosher. Cote D’or will be a right in and right only. Left turns will be prohibited. Eastbound traffic will need to use Mosher or make a U turn at Bradshaw to access that subdivision.
