Document Description
The I-5 Riverfront Reconnection Project consists of augmenting existing multi-modal connections between the Downtown and Riverfront/Old Sacramento areas including along Capitol Mall, the Crocker Art Museum campus, the Riverfront areas, and between Capitol Mall and the northern part of 2nd Street into the Old Sacramento Historic District. This would be accomplished by constructing an additional I-5 overcrossing at N Street, converting a portion of existing Neasham Circle into a bicycle/pedestrian-only facility between Front Street and 2nd Street, constructing a viaduct (raised roadway) above the existing Neasham Circle south of Capitol Mall, and creating a 2nd Street connector as a new connection into Old Sacramento from Capitol Mall. The interface between the Front Street viaduct/2nd Street Connector and Capitol Mall would result in a new intersection. The existing slip ramps connecting N Street and L Street with Capitol Mall will be closed and the street pavement for the ramps may be removed. The project also consists of adding a sidewalk on the south side of the existing O Street overcrossing, adding sidewalk along the south side of existing N Street between I-5 and 3rd Street, and adding bicycle lanes and widened sidewalks on the existing Capitol Mall overcrossing.
