7/28/16 -- Union Pacific Railroad has postponed the Calvine Road project. A new date has not been set yet. The Elk Grove-Florin Road (8/8 to 8/12), and Bond Road (8/15 to 8/19) closure dates are still in effect.
--Road Closure & Traffic Restrictions--
Calvine Road at the Union Pacific Railroad Crossing
(Between Power Inn Road & Elk Grove Florin Road)
Monday (8/1) @ 8 a.m. until Friday (8/5) @ 5 p.m., 2016
When/Where: Starting Monday, August 1 at 8 a.m. until Friday, August 5 at 5 p.m., Calvine Road -- from Power Inn Road to Elk Grove Florin Road -- will be closed to through traffic. This closure has been requested by Union Pacific Railroad for needed repairs for sections of railroad tracks. Information about the closure and detours is as follows:
- The closure will impact all westbound and eastbound through traffic on Calvine Road -- between Power Inn Road & Elk Grove Florin Road -- including vehicles, pedestrians and bicycles.
- The full closure of Calvine Road will only occur at the Union Pacific Railroad crossing between Barrymore Drive/Sheldon North Drive to Vintage Park Drive. Access for all property owners and residents will be maintained at all times.
Increased Travel Time & Detours: Roadway users are advised to avoid this area during the closure period as there will be significant impacts to all through traffic, and to use alternative routes until project work is completed (see detour map on back). Detour signs and electronic message boards will be in place to alert motorists, pedestrians and bicyclists about the temporary road closure.
Construction Activities: Project work includes Union Pacific Railroad crews making needed repairs to sections of railroad tracks. County maintenance crews will also repair adjacent sections of pavement on Calvine Road on the east and west sides of the railroad tracks.
Closure Period: Sacramento County and the City of Elk Grove understand the challenges and inconveniences that commuters, residents, businesses, bicyclists and pedestrians will experience during the closure period and ask for the public’s patience and cooperation as we work to complete this project. Detour map below.
*Still in Effect*
Other Anticipated Closures: Union Pacific Railroad is expected to continue with other upgrades and repair work in August. Similar 4-5 day closures are anticipated in the City of Elk Grove at two additional locations. Dates are projected based on the current work schedule and subject to change by Union Pacific Railroad.
• Elk Grove-Florin Road – August 8-12
