Heavy Construction on the Rocklin Road and Pacific Street Roundabout Begins Week of April 18


The City of Rocklin will replace the existing four way traffic signal the Rocklin Road and Pacific Street intersection with a two-lane roundabout. Construction will begin the week of April 18 and will extend along Rocklin Road from Railroad Avenue to San Francisco Street, and on Pacific Street from Oak Street to Bush Street.

The project will be constructed in multiple phases and various lane and road closures will be needed. Detours for these road closures will be in place during the project, and motorists should expect delays. Businesses will remain open during construction activities and access to all businesses and residences will be maintained throughout the project.

A project website is available at www.rocklin.ca.us/Roundabout where individuals can sign up for roundabout updates.

“The project will improve traffic circulation and access to community destinations in the Quarry District,” said Keith Jukes, Associate Civil Engineer with the City of Rocklin. “The roundabout design was chosen because it reduces collisions and increases intersection efficiency.”

In addition to installing a new roundabout, the City will construct an oval-shaped, landscaped island at the center of the roundabout, install a separate right turn lane outside of the roundabout for northbound and westbound approaches and reconstruct all four approaches from the intersection.

The project is 100% grant funded through a Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality grant of $4.7 million. Construction is planned to run 180 days, not including weekends or weather delays. It is slated to end in fall 2022.
