The I-80/SR 65 interchange is an important regional connector that serves the burgeoning commercial and office spaces along the Highway 65 corridor and travelers along Interstate 80. Traffic within the area is fairly congested especially during peak hours and it is going to get worse. The Placer County Transportation Planning Agency (PCTPA) is working on improving the interchange to remove the bottleneck impeding the traffic flow which keeps Placer residents, businesses, and visitors stuck in traffic.
The overall project consists of the following phases:
- Project Study Report (completed by Caltrans in 2009)
- Project Approval and Environmental Document (currently underway)
- Final Design and Right-of-Way Acquisition
