Rocklin Road/I-80 Interchange Improvements Project
Virtual Open House Oct. 19
The City of Rocklin is hosting a virtual open house on October 19, 2021, from 4:30 to 6:00 p.m. to share information about the Rocklin Road/I-80 Interchange Improvements Project and obtain community feedback.
The anticipated changes to the Rocklin Road Interchange will address existing traffic congestion and improve walking and biking connections between downtown Rocklin and Sierra Community College. Attendees will be provided information on the improvement plan and will be informed on how to stay involved throughout the process.
Rocklin Road is a prominent east-west arterial roadway including a five-lane undercrossing with a narrow sidewalk, no shoulders, and no bike lanes. The City is proposing to reconfigure the interchange into a Diverging Diamond Interchange (DDI) and a separate crossing of Interstate 80 to allow for better bicycle and pedestrian connections between Sierra Community College and Rocklin’s Downtown.
“This project will not only enhance safety for pedestrians, bicyclist and motorists,” said Matt McClure, Project Manager with the City of Rocklin, “but it will also increase the overall movement of people and goods through a major roadway, benefitting Rocklin and the Placer region as it continues to grow.”
