Old Auburn Rd Complete Streets Plan

The Old Auburn Road Complete Streets Plan is complete.

The Old Auburn Road Complete Streets Plan was adopted by the City Council on March 26, 2020. The plan evaluates the current transportation conditions on Old Auburn Road between Auburn Boulevard and Garry Oak Drive and identifies ways to improve safety on the road for people driving, riding bicycles, walking, and taking transit. The City secured SACOG funding for Phase 1A of this project through a CalTrans Sustainable Communities Grant. You can review the plan and the appendices by clicking the links below (note that some of the files sizes are very large and may take several minutes to download).

Old Auburn Road Temporary Safety Improvements and Community Safety Fair 

Thank you to all who joined us for the Community Safety Fair on October 19, 2019!  This kick-off and celebration for the week long temporary road changes on Old Auburn Road included a bike rodeo, helmet fittings, a pedestrian safety class, and free bicycle helmets.  There were SmaRT Ride bus tours, opportunities to see a SacMetro Fire Engine, and visits from the Citrus Heights Police Department.

The city traffic engineer, other city staff and design consultants were also available to answer questions and receive feedback regarding the temporary road changes and the overall Old Auburn Road Complete Streets Plan.

The temporary roadway changes (road diet demonstration) was in place from October 19 - 27 to showcase a potential alternative including lane reductions, and protected bike lanes.
