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.

2/20-2/21 Zinfandel Drive Tree Work and Street Closure

The City of Rancho Cordova is a vibrant community that values growing and maintaining its trees. As part of this effort, the City will be pruning and removing diseased or dead oak tree branches on four trees, and removing one tree in the median in front of W.E. Mitchell Middle School on Monday, February 20 and Tuesday, February 21, 2017.

Zinfandel Drive will be closed between Berrywood Drive and Hirschfeld Way from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on both days. Detour signs will direct traffic around the project area on Berrywood Drive and Hirschfeld Way. W.E. Mitchell Middle School will be closed both days in recognition of President’s Day; however, please plan for minor delays, drive with caution, and reduce speeds in the area.

Four oak trees will be pruned to shorten branches and remove diseased or dead branches. Tree pruning keeps tree branches strong and keeps trees healthy. One oak tree will be removed due to extensive decay that presents safety concerns for the nearby area. New oak trees will be planted in available places in the median at a later date.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Steve Harriman at (916) 851-8716 or sharriman@cityofranchocordova.org.

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.

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.
