Midday, Weekend Metering Coming to 3 Highway 65 On-ramps
Extended Hours Aimed at Easing Congestion on Southbound Corridor in Roseville, Rocklin
PLACER COUNTY — In an effort to relieve congestion and make merging safer for motorists, Caltrans today announced plans for midday and weekend ramp metering on a series of freeway entrances to southbound State Highway 65 in Rocklin and Roseville.
Starting Monday, April 8, the ramp meters will operate from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays through Fridays and 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. Currently, the ramp meters operate during the morning commute from 6 to 9 a.m. and the afternoon commute from 2 to 6 p.m. weekdays.
Nearly three thousand people will race near Johnson-Springview Park on April 7 for the 16th-annual Run Rocklin event, with all the proceeds benefitting local charities. Participants can choose the 5k, 12k, or half-marathon option, and there are even two free kids’ runs.
The focus of Run Rocklin isn’t on athleticism or endurance; rather, the race is a fun and healthy way for people to connect with friends and family and raise money for a good cause.
