Document Description
The City of Folsom proposes to widen Folsom-Auburn Road from two lanes to four lanes beginning at Folsom Dam Road and continuing north to approximately 700 feet north of the Placer County line, to the San Juan Water District facility in Placer County. The total project length is approximately 3,960 feet (0.75 miles). South of Folsom Dam Road, Folsom-Auburn road is currently a four-lane roadway. At its intersection with Folsom Dam Road, Folsom-Auburn Road abruptly changes from a four-lane width to a two lane width, creating a northbound "bottleneck effect". The proposed project would extend the four-lane section of Folsom-Auburn Road that begins south of Folsom Dam Road to the project termination point at the San Juan Water District facility in Placer County, where it would then transition back to a rural two-lane roadway. The proposed widening would increase the improved section to four 12-foot-wide vehicle lanes plus six-foot-wide paved shoulders on either side, including a Class II bike lane along the east side of the roadway. The proposed improvements will also include two-foot-wide graded shoulders on each side, and may include paved or planted medians. In addition, a separated bike lane and pedestrian walkway will be constructed along the west side of the roadway. In addition to the road widening, improvements would be made at all intersections within the project area.
