Green Valley Road Night Work to Begin

Nighttime work on the Green Valley Road widening project will take place through next Tuesday, June 4 (excluding Friday and Saturday). Motorists can expect minor delays from East Natoma Street to Sophia Parkway, 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. The project includes four travel lanes, class 2 bike lanes, and a painted median/turn lane. The project will improve traffic flow, level of service at nearby traffic signals, and air quality by reducing commute times. Green Valley Road was originally paved more than 60 years ago and is a regional arterial connection between the City of Folsom and El Dorado County. The road is used by approximately 25,000 motorists daily and traffic can get very heavy during peak commute times. The project will be completed by spring 2020.
