On Thursday, April 5, Mayor Darrell Steinberg, Councilmember Jeff Harris, Councilmember Eric Guerra, Assembly member Kevin McCarty, and community partners broke ground for the Romona Avenue Extension Project.
This project, along with the upcoming work on Folsom Boulevard, will enhance safety for all modes of transportation — especially for those commuting to and from Sacramento State University. Construction will begin Spring 2018 and is anticipated to be completed by September 2018.
This project not only enhances safety along Folsom Boulevard, but will also connect to a 225-unit student housing project, The Crossings. The housing community will provide 750 beds to serve the students of Sacramento State.
Additionally, the Crossings is being constructed within the 240-acre Sacramento Center for Innovation Specific Plan, an area that is designated to foster the exchange of technical knowledge and expertise between students, faculty and innovative businesses and technology companies.
