The first phase will improve Douglas Road from Americanos Boulevard to Grant Line Road.

Detours will be in place and please follow the detour signs.

The second phase will improve Douglas Road from Rancho Cordova Parkway to Americanos Boulevard. The improvements will include two eastbound lanes, two westbound lanes, a landscaped median and traffic signals at the intersections of Rancho Cordova Parkway, Timberland Drive, Borderlands Drive and Americanos Boulevard. 

Construction of both projects is expected to be completed late 2018. The projects will beautify the corridor with landscaping and improve safety for motorists, pedestrians and bicyclists. Please contact Tameem Samimi at (916) 851-8905 for additional information.

Draft South Sacramento Habitat Conservation Plan

The draft South Sacramento Habitat Conservation Plan (SSHCP) will streamline permitting processes for future development and infrastructure projects in much of south Sacramento County, including the area of Rancho Cordova south of Highway 50, while protecting habitat, open space and agriculture lands. The draft SSHCP and accompanying Environmental Impact Statement/Environmental Impact Report and Aquatic Resources Program can be reviewed by visiting www.southsachcp.com/documents.html.

The SSHCP plan area encompasses 317,656 acres that are bordered by Highway 50 on the north, San Joaquin County on the south, El Dorado County to the east and the Sacramento River to the west, and includes Galt and the area of Rancho Cordova south of Highway 50.

Within the SSHCP plan area, 36,282 acres would become part of an interconnected preserve system, including approximately 1,000 acres of vernal pool habitat. Twenty-eight plant and wildlife species, and their natural habitats, will be conserved under the plan.

The SSHCP is led by a multi-jurisdiction partnership that includes Sacramento County, the cities of Rancho Cordova and Galt, Sacramento County Water Agency, Sacramento Regional County Sanitation District, and Capital SouthEast Connector Joint Powers Authority. Learn more at www.southsachcp.com

 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 Public Works Director Albert Stricker at (916) 851-8713 or by email.

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.
