Sacramento Connector Ramps Metering Project

Project Facts


Install connector ramp meters at four locations in Sacramento County. The first location is the connector ramp from eastbound Route 160 to northbound Route 51 (Business 80), the second location is from southbound Route 99 to southbound Interstate 5 (I-5), the third location is from southbound I-5 to northbound Route 99, and the fourth location is from southbound Route 99 to northbound I-5.

Project Benefits

Purpose: The purpose of this project is to install ramp meters to help relieve traffic congestion-related collisions and reduce vehicle delays on Routes 5, 51 and 99 in Sacramento County.

Need: The capacity of the freeway system has been unable to keep up with increasing traffic due to population growth in the greater Sacramento area. Traffic congestion and vehicle delays have steadily increased. Installing connector ramp metering will help to alleviate this problem.
