Sacramento County and the City of Rancho Cordova commemorated the completion of the Femoyer Street Improvement Project, September 19. The project greatly enhances access, connectivity and traffic circulation for the Mather Commerce Center and for Rancho Cordova. In attendance at the event were Don Nottoli, District 5 County Supervisor; Dan Skoglund, Mayor of Rancho Cordova; and Rob Leonard, Chief Deputy County Executive.
“The completion of the Femoyer Street connection fulfills another longtime commitment to improve the transportation grid at Mather,” said Don Nottoli, County Supervisor for District 5. “This project serves to improve access in the City of Rancho Cordova by linking the Mather Commerce Center, Mather Airport and the V. A. Hospital with surrounding neighborhoods, business districts and recreational facilities.”
Residents of the Stone Creek neighborhood will directly benefit from the Airpark Drive portion of the project, which will improve access for vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists.
The project included:
Construction of a new portion of roadway on Femoyer Street to fill in a gap between International Drive and Peter A. McCuen Boulevard;
Widening and improving an existing portion of Femoyer Street between Peter A. McCuen Boulevard and Mather Boulevard;
Construction of a new portion of Airpark Drive east of Femoyer Street; and
New landscaped medians, sidewalks, street lights, and potable water and drainage facilities.
DeSilva Gates Construction was the contractor for this $4.5 million project. Project construction costs were covered with funding from the Mather Fee Program, Sacramento County and the City of Rancho Cordova. The project continues Sacramento County’s long-term efforts and investments in the conversion of military bases to civilian uses. Many infrastructure projects have been completed at McClellan and Mather to connect these facilities to local communities and improve roadways to foster new business development and new investments.
