Roundabout

Overview

Rocklin Road and Pacific Street Roundabout

As the City of Rocklin continues to grow and develop, traffic on the Rocklin Road and Pacific Street corridors is anticipated to increase. The Rocklin Road and Pacific Street Roundabout Project will improve traffic operations and safety at the current four-way intersection.

PROJECT LOCATION

The City will replace the existing four-way traffic signal at Rocklin Road and Pacific Street intersection with a two-lane roundabout.

The project limits will extend along Rocklin Road from Railroad Avenue to San Francisco Street, and on Pacific Street from Oak Street to Bush Street.

UPCOMING IMPROVEMENTS

In addition to the new roundabout, this project 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
  • Reconstruct all four approaches from the intersection
  • Replace concrete within the intersection with asphalt pavement
  • Improve underground utilities
  • Install new landscaping and street lighting

SCHEDULE

Major construction began on April 18, 2022.
