Infrastructure work at Placer One set to begin this summer

Published June 29, 2023

Important infrastructure improvements are set to begin at Placer One, a master-planned community in unincorporated west Placer County.

The development, which includes a California State University, Sacramento satellite campus, is planned to be a destination for commercial employment, shopping, dining, and a variety of housing options connected by natural open space and bike paths.

The work, which will start in late July or early August and be completed in January, includes the installation of sewer pipes on Fiddyment Road and Angus Road within the City of Roseville. Road restrictions will occur between Placer One’s southern boundary at the Roseville city limit and the Pleasant Grove Creek Open Space, affecting City of Roseville residents who live near the Placer One site.

The installation work will be divided into five sections to limit closures or lane reductions to the portions of roads where pipes are being installed. Work on each of the five sections will take approximately six weeks and will start on Angus Road at the elbow adjacent to the Pleasant Grove Creek Open Space and move north.

Residents will be notified in advance about when work will start and be completed on the section closest to them. Residents will also be provided with information about alternate transportation routes to be used during each section’s construction, and information will be available on the Placer One website at

Placer One is a 2,213-acre, master-planned development that includes homes, businesses, and land for CSU, Sacramento - Placer Center. Plans for the Placer Center include a partnership with Sierra College for a transfer center that is expected to allow students of both systems to attend classes in a blended learning environment.  

CSU, Sacramento, Sierra College and homebuilder Taylor Builders Inc. came together last fall to break ground on the first phase of Placer One. 

The Placer County Board of Supervisors approved $28 million in funding of the sewer line connection that will support the university development and the overall Sunset Area which is planned as a primary-wage earner business destination.
