Traffic Advisory: Roundabout Construction to Close Intersection of Waterman Road at Sheldon Road

Posted: 06/27/2016

The City of Elk Grove Public Works Department will close the intersection of Waterman and Sheldon Road for 30 days beginning July 5 to construct one of two roundabouts approved for the rural Elk Grove area.

Closure Period: A full closure of the intersection at Waterman Road and Sheldon Road is scheduled from July 5 until August 3.

Increased Travel Times & Detours: This closure will impact all through traffic on Waterman and Sheldon Roads. Motorists are advised to use either Bradshaw Road on the east, Elk Grove-Florin Road to the west, Calvine Road to the north, or Bond Road to the south to bypass the closure. Detour signs and electronic message boards will be in place to divert traffic around the work site.

Access for emergency vehicles and property owners in the area will be maintained during the closure.

The City of Elk Grove understands the challenges and inconvenience that commuters, residents, businesses, and pedestrians will experience during the closure period and ask for the public’s patience and cooperation as we work to complete this project as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Construction Activities: Crews will be installing a single-lane roundabout with a separate westbound right turn lane from southbound Waterman Road to westbound Sheldon Road. Improvements will include pedestrian accessible crossings at the intersection (roundabout), drainage improvements, and other landscaping features.

Re-opening: The roadway is scheduled to re-open on August 4, 2016.

For questions or more information, please contact the Public Works Department at (916) 627-3315.
