The on- and off-ramps for Highway 99 will relocate and a new traffic signal will be installed with the hopes of improving traffic flow, according to the City of Elk Grove's latest newsletter.
The project is mostly funded by a state grant from Proposition 1B, transportation bond program, according to the city.
Here are the changes in store for the interchange, according to the city:
- The northbound on-ramp to SR-99 is being relocated to the south on East Stockton Boulevard, next to the existing off-ramp.
- Eastbound motorists heading north onto 99 will turn right, instead of left, so the signal at the northbound on-ramp can be removed.
- Westbound travelers will continue to turn right onto the existing northbound on-ramp.
- A new signal will be built on East Stockton at the on/off-ramps and also serve as the new entrance to the Village Shopping Center.
- Other ramp improvements include adding a deceleration lane to the existing northbound off-ramp and widening the existing southbound off-ramp.
