The City of Citrus Heights has identified Old Auburn Road as an important corridor for all types of transportation.
Currently, community concerns about Old Auburn Road include pedestrian and bicyclist safety, high vehicle speeds, and a lack of pedestrian crossings, bicycle lanes, sidewalks, and lighting.
The Old Auburn Road Complete Streets Plan will evaluate current transportation conditions on Old Auburn Road between Auburn Boulevard and Garry Oak Drive and identify how to improve safety on the road for people driving, riding bicycles, walking, and taking transit.
This project is a major step towards making Old Auburn Road a “complete street.”
A “complete street” is a transportation design and operation philosophy that intends streets to be safe, convenient and comfortable for all users, regardless of age, ability, or how one feels while traveling. Complete streets can include, but are not limited to, sidewalks, bike lanes, bus pull-outs, and traffic calming measures such as center medians and street trees.
When concluded, the Old Auburn Road Complete Streets Plan will be used to seek funding for final design and construction of the improvements.
The city has been diligently working over the past several years to increase walkability and provide improvements for pedestrians and cyclists citywide. The Old Auburn Road Complete Streets Plan aims to provide increased transportation choices and safe connections to key destinations for residents.
The project team is currently reviewing all comments received during Community Workshop #1. A summary will be uploaded to this website as soon as complete. Additional data collection is underway. Community Workshop #2 will be scheduled within the next few months to discuss the data, information, alternatives, and potential roadway treatments. Stay Tuned!!

The Old Auburn Road Complete Streets Plan will be informed by technical analysis, best practices in transportation planning and design, and community input.
