Every year, the City of Rancho Cordova's Public Works Department completes a number of construction projects in our community. These projects beautify Rancho Cordova and ensure the City has walkable and connected neighborhoods and safe routes for residents, bikers, and drivers. Tour our new, online map to see projects that are under construction, ongoing, completed, and planned.

2017 ADA Sidewalk Improvement Project

The 2017 ADA Sidewalk Improvement Project is starting on Monday, April 17, 2017. The project will be replacing sections of sidewalk in front of 28 residential homes throughout the community. The sidewalks will improve pedestrian safety and enhance accessibility for residents in Rancho Cordova neighborhoods. Click here for a project map.

The project is estimated to last 25 working days, weather permitting. Construction is expected to last no longer than one week in front of each home and will take place Monday through Friday between the hours of 7 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.

Message to Homeowners: The section of sidewalk will be in front of some driveways, so access to driveways may be restricted during the one week construction period. Please look for a letter or door hanger from the City to find out if this impacts you. Street parking will also be restricted, so please find nearby parking alternatives. Also, please refrain from irrigating your front yard during the one week construction period to prevent delays in the timeline at your home. Please expect noise and sidewalk closures during the project.

ADA Transition Plan

The City of Rancho Cordova adopted a ADA Transition Plan on May 2, 2005. The main purpose of this plan is to develop policies and practices for implementing physical pedestrian improvements within the public right-of-way of the City of Rancho Cordova. The goal is to optimize the pedestrian experience, to provide safe and usable pedestrian facilities for all pedestrians, and to assure compliance with all federal, state and local regulations and standards.

The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and subsequent interpretations by the Department of Justice require municipalities such as the City of Rancho Cordova to prepare a plan detailing how they will make their streets and roads accessible to disabled individuals. In addition, the plan is addressing California Title 24 requirements. The plan identifies and prioritizes disabled access projects, estimate project costs, highlight and implementation schedule and funding strategy, and grievance and monitoring programs.

For additional information, please contact Rupa Somavarapu, Senior Engineer at 851-8712 or via email at rsomavarapu@cityofranchocordova.org.

Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plans

The City of Rancho Cordova has completed the Draft Final Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plans. These plans will help promote safe and desirable non-motorized travel for residents and workers and to provide good connections across Highway 50 and to regional trails systems like the American River Parkway Trail. The Final Master Plans were presented to the Rancho Cordova City Council for approval on March 21, 2011.

For additional information, please contact Rupa Somavarapu, Senior Engineer at 851-8712 or via email at rsomavarapu@cityofranchocordova.org.

Transit Master Plans

The City of Rancho Cordova has prepared a Transit Master Plan that will set the framework for future city-wide transit service. This service will provide options to automobile travel for residents and workers, both within the City and in surrounding areas. Service concepts will be geared toward connecting neighborhoods and business opportunities and will be closely coordinated with the Sacramento Regional Transit District’s Gold Line service, providing smooth and timely connections.

For additional information, please contact Rupa Somavarapu, Senior Engineer at 851-8712 or via email at rsomavarapu@cityofranchocordova.org.

Capital Improvement Plan

The 2016-2020 Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) represents the FY15/16 and FY16/17 Capital Improvement Budget and a three-year plan for FY17/18 – FY19/20. The CIP provides program summary information for the City’s various capital improvement funding programs, as well as project summary information (budget, expenditures, and schedule) for the specific projects selected for implementation during the CIP period.

The bridge has been identified as “The Promenade” and will connect office parks and future residents south of Highway 50 with the City’s commercial core on the north of Highway 50, effectively linking more than 25,000 jobs with light rail and retail services.

Capital SouthEast Connector Project

The Capital SouthEast Connector Project is a 34-mile expressway through the southern area of Sacramento County into El Dorado County. The expressway would connect Interstate 5 to Highway 50 by enabling drivers to bypass downtown Sacramento. The project is being managed by the Capital SouthEast Connector Joint Powers Authority (JPA) and includes the cities of Rancho Cordova, Elk Grove, and Folsom, and El Dorado and Sacramento Counties.

A portion of the expressway is proposed in the City of Rancho Cordova from Grant Line Road and Highway 16 (Jackson Highway) to Grant Line Road and White Rock Road. Click here to view a map. The project will continue to improve transportation for Rancho Cordova residents. Visit http://www.connectorjpa.net/ for more information.

The Environmental Document for the City portion of the project is available for a 30-day public review and comment period through May 1, 2017 at www.connectorjpa.net. Click here to learn more.
