Traffic Alert: East Natoma Street Overnight Closures Begin November 11

PG&E begins work Sunday, November 11 to relocate underground gas lines to make way for the Oak Parkway Trail bike/pedestrian undercrossing.  Nighttime closures of East Natoma Street between Fargo Way and Prison Road will take place 8 p.m. to 4 a.m. Sunday through Thursday starting November 11 and continuing through December 21, 2018. The closures will affect both eastbound and westbound traffic on East Natoma Street. Marked detours will be in place to route motorists around the overnight road closure.

Motorists traveling on East Natoma Street when closures are lifted are encouraged to use caution as traffic is shifted with a reduced speed limit of 25 mph between Fargo Way and Prison Road. For the duration of the project, no left turn onto Fargo Way will be available for westbound traffic on East Natoma Street.

Cyclists and pedestrians should note that due to construction, the Oak Parkway Trail between Marchant Drive and East Natoma Street will remain closed through May 2019. Detours are in place to direct trail users around the closure.

Work to connect the Oak Parkway Trail to the Johnny Cash Trail near East Natoma Street and Prison Road began in early October. This project will create a tunnel directly under East Natoma Street and provide a seamless and safe route for trail users to transition between the two trails.

The Oak Parkway Trail undercrossing is scheduled to open for public use in spring 2019. For more information about the project, contact City of Folsom Trails Planner Jim Konopka at jkonopka@folsom.ca.us or call 916-496-1505.
