Roseville Oak Street Improvement Project to Begin


SHARE with Friend




As part of the City of Roseville's plans to revitalize downtown Roseville as envisioned by the Downtown Specific Plan, improve traffic safety and ease traffic congestion, construction on the Oak Street Improvement Project will begin in April and continue through the end of 2014.

The project includes a roundabout at the intersection of Washington Boulevard and Oak Street.  It also includes installation of traffic signals at the corners of Oak & Grant and Oak & Lincoln streets; Oak Street realignment; reconfiguration of entry and exit points to Oak Street parking; streetscape and landscape improvements along Oak Street; modifications to the traffic signals at Lincoln & Vernon streets; and some minor work on Lincoln Street to add a right turn lane and frontage improvements.

One lane of traffic in each direction will be open during the entire construction period.  Traffic through this area may be heavy during morning and evening commute times, and special events.  Motorists can also enter downtown from either end of Vernon and Atlantic streets.

Parking availability along Oak Street and Dry Creek will be limited.  Travelers to downtown are encouraged to park in the free downtown parking garage near the corner of Vernon and S. Grant streets.  There are other free parking options in downtown, shown on this map.

A roundabout was included in the project to improve driver and pedestrian safety at the intersection of Washington and Oak; improve traffic flow; and to create a landmark entry feature into downtown. For more information go online
