Virtual Community Meeting for the Highway 50/Empire Ranch Road Interchange Project

The City of Folsom is hosting a virtual community meeting for the Highway 50/Empire Ranch Roach Interchange Project from 4:30 to 6 p.m. Wednesday, February 24.

The meeting will be held virtually over Zoom, and the public is encouraged to register in advance at: bit.ly/EmpireRanchRoadMeeting.

The City of Folsom, in cooperation with Caltrans, is proposing a new interchange on the Sacramento County/El Dorado County line, between the existing East Bidwell Street interchange in Folsom and Latrobe Road interchange in El Dorado Hills. The virtual community meeting will include a brief presentation on the project design, environmental process, and project schedule, followed by an opportunity for the community to ask questions and provide feedback to city staff and the project team.

Currently, the project is in the preliminary design and environmental phase, which is expected to be complete by the summer of 2021. Once the environmental document is approved, final design will begin with construction anticipated to start in 2025 at the earliest, depending on funding availability.
