Capital Corridor SE Connector

I asked Karen and Ralph to post the public notice for the next section of the Capital Connector. This section will involve the rework of the intersection at the end of Scott Road and will change the way we access Prairie City Road. It also should improve the right turn you make to go to Folsom. The entire section of White Rock from Prarie City to Latrobe becomes four lanes and joins the westward heading section that was completed a few years ago. Ultimately, this becomes one big connection that links HWY 50 and Elk Grove. It will eventually head down Grant Line Road and go over the Jackson Hwy.

This project does promise a much safer turn off Scott going both ways. I am goingcheck if the plan incluses a streetlight at the Scott Road /White Rock intersection. The Prarie City intersection is already well lit as a result of the last reconstruction. This rework will also eliminate the big culverts that cause the narrow turn when you approach Scott from the east as you return from Folsom.

It's quite possible that this will be significant inconvenience during construction. I will try to find out the details of how they plan to handle it and how long it should take to complete.

Info on the Capital SouthEast Connector

Here's the email John referenced:

The Initial Study with proposed Mitigated Negative Declaration (IS/MND) for the Capital SouthEast Connector Segment D3/E1 Project is currently in public circulation. The project lead agency is the Capital SouthEast Connector Authority (Connector JPA), which proposes to reconstruct White Rock Road from approximately the White Rock Road and Prairie City Road intersection, in the City of Folsom and Sacramento County, to approximately the intersection of White Rock Road and Latrobe Road, in El Dorado County. A notice of availability of the environmental document has been attached, which includes more details about the proposed project.

The Connector JPA has studied the effects this project may have on the environment. Our “Initial Study” shows that the proposed project will not significantly affect the quality of the environment, and thus a Mitigated Negative Declaration has been prepared. This notice is to inform you that the document is available for you to read and review and that it is the Connector’s JPA’s intent to adopt an IS/MND for the project.

The IS/MND and other project information is available for review at the Connector JPA Office (10640 Mather Blvd, Suite 120, Mather, CA 95655) on weekdays between 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM between October 13, 2015 and November 13, 2015. The proposed IS/MND is also be available for download and review at the following location: https://zendto.dokkenengineering.com/pickup.php?claimID=j34mrJtXntzd9zfb&claimPasscode=ckNXw4jH7N8agdkM. Additionally, if you would like us to send a copy of the environmental document on CD and/or hardcopy, please provide us with the address of where you would like it to be sent.

If you have any comments or questions once you have reviewed the document, or agree or disagree with the findings of our studies as set forth in the proposed IS/MND, please submit your comments in writing no later than November 13, 2015 to Mr. Tom Zlotkowski, Executive Director, 10640 Mather Blvd, Suite 120, Mather, CA 95655

Thank you!
