Sacramento County will begin the replacement of the bridge where Elk Grove-Florin Road crosses over Elder Creek. The current bridge only allows for two lanes of travel.
The replacement bridge will allow for the eventual widening of Elk Grove – Florin Road. Construction will start in 2019. There is no date on the eventual widening of Elk Grove-Florin Road. The roadway is a major thoroughfare for commuters heading between Elk Grove and Sacramento. The area is a bottleneck from Gerber Road to Jackson Road with only one lane in each direction.
This Elk Grove – Florin Road (Gerber to Florin) improvement project will replace the existing 2 lane bridge at Elder Creek to accommodate future roadway widening and Elder Creek channel improvements.
Planned roadway improvements include:
