Press release from the City of Elk Grove


ELK GROVE, CA - The City of Elk Grove will close one lane of Grant Line Road at the Waterman intersection next week, to begin preliminary work on a project that will significantly improve traffic flow and enhance safety.

From February 23 to March 7, crews will begin work on the Waterman Road Intersection Improvement Project, which will move this intersection away from the Union Pacific Railroad Crossing, and signalize the intersection.

One westbound lane will be closed for preliminary work, which includes tree removals. Personnel will direct traffic at the site. Motorists may also use Mosher Road and Waterman Road as an alternate route.

When complete, the Waterman Road Intersection Improvement Project will:

* Add traffic signals to the intersection, which will reduce traffic and wait times, while improving the safety of turns from and onto Waterman Road
* Add turn lanes to separate traffic movements
* Move the intersection away from the railroad to prevent vehicles queuing across the railroad tracks
* Allow for future work on the Grant Line Road Widening Project

The project is expected to be finished by the summer of 2010.
