This summer, the City of Elk Grove will break ground on the Elk Grove Blvd. Interchange Modification Project. This $5.5 million dollar project is designed to significantly improve traffic flow and motorist and pedestrian safety on Elk Grove Blvd. at Highway 99, while updating one of the most outdated interchanges on Highway 99 in Sacramento County.
In order to accommodate the work, 103 trees— including 20 oak trees—will be removed in the vicinity of the project. The majority of the trees are common, non-native, or invasive trees, including the eucalyptus trees, shown below. The trees will be removed near the existing on-ramps and off-ramps and near the shopping center off E. Stockton Blvd.
More than $17,000 will be reinvested in the City of Elk Grove tree mitigation fund— a fund that’s designed to facilitate tree plantings and educational programs about the importance of trees in an urban environment. In addition, 77 new oak trees will be replanted at the Elk Grove Blvd./Highway 99 Interchange when the project is complete. The trees will then be monitored and maintained to ensure long-term success.
The City anticipates the interchange project will be complete in summer 2014.
The tree removals are expected to begin this March. For more information, contact Project Manager Dorothy Kam at 916-478-3604 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
