The 18-month schedule of infrastructure, road and safety improvements that started south of Highway 50 in May is proceeding at a smooth and steady pace. Nearly three miles of sewer line is being installed, the Sacramento Municipal Utility District has started construction on a substation to provide the area with power, the first section of Alder Creek Parkway – a significant east/west thoroughfare – has opened, and the roads and pads for the first new neighborhoods are becoming visible in the area near White Rock Road and the soon-to-be-renamed Scott Road.
Construction begins August 22 on the replacement of a very old sewer line that runs underground through sections of the Zoo Sanctuary. Over the course of the project, some of the animals will be off-exhibit as they’re relocated to temporary quarters to protect them from the noise and dust from construction.
The City of Folsom is hosting a grand opening celebration on Saturday, October 14 for the completion of the Johnny Cash Trail, a 2.5-mile trail that honors one of the world’s most famous country musicians and his influence on Folsom.
Work will begin Friday, August 18 on a water line replacement project, requiring a nighttime closure of one westbound lane on Greenback Lane between Folsom-Auburn Road and American River Canyon Drive. The closure will allow crews to replace an existing water line that is beyond its serviceable life and install approximately 1,000 linear feet of 12-inch water main.
The City of Folsom provides all residents with a free water usage and leak alert portal, Dropcountr, available today on Web, Android or Apple iOS. With Dropcountr, you and your family can track usage, make sense of price tiers, sign up for alerts, set goals and receive support, anytime, anywhere.
