SACRAMENTO – Caltrans Districts 3 is planning a Virtual Open House and public meeting to inform the public and gather feedback about the Interstate 5 (I-5) Corridor Improvement Project in Sacramento County.

This corridor of I-5 experiences high travel demand especially during peak commute periods. As a result, the project area is subject to recurring congestion and impaired mobility, resulting in bottlenecks, increased vehicle emissions, increased travel costs, and reduced travel time reliability.

Additionally, planned development between downtown Sacramento and SMF will only increase the severity of congestion along this route.

The Virtual Open House will have Caltrans staff available to answer questions about this project. There will also be a survey for the public to provide input on the website.  Caltrans encourages the public to attend and add feedback. Participants can view the web content here

The virtual meeting will be held on Tuesday, Mar. 2 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., with two informational sessions each beginning at 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. Participants can join one or both sessions. 

Telephone participation (no visuals) in the meeting may be done by dialing:

408-418-9388, and using access code 966-621-718 at the prompt, or

(toll-free): 1-866-702-0604 and using participant code 8555183 at the prompt.




The project is designed to reduce congestion, lessen wait time for motorists, provide additional modes of transportation access, promote ride sharing, improve mobility, and improve traffic operations along this region.  

Intelligent transportation system (ITS) infrastructure will also be added to actively manage recurrent and non-recurrent congestion. The goal is to begin construction by 2025 and complete the project by 2028.
