- Yankee Jims Bridge Replacement
Dalby Road over Yankee Slough
The current structure is deficient and was recommended for closure by Caltrans. Placer County has installed temporary supports in order to keep the bridge open and the County is regularly monitoring the bridge. The proposed bridge replacement project will bring this bridge into compliance with current structural and roadway geometric guidelines.
Haines Road over Wise Canal
The existing bridge over Wise Canal is functionally obsolete because it only accommodates one lane of traffic on a two-lane road. Furthermore, the bridge was constructed in 1930 and is beyond its design life. This bridge replacement project will bring the structure into compliance with current structural and roadway geometric guidelines.

Watt Avenue at Dry Creek
The existing Watt Avenue Bridge over Dry Creek was built in 1940 and is obsolete. Due to the condition of the bridge and the new development in the area, the existing bridge will be replaced.
The project site is adjacent to the Placer Vineyards and Riolo Vineyards Specific Plan areas and within the Dry Creek/West Placer Community Plan area. Project objectives include replacing the existing bridge to meet future land use and circulation demands, meet regional flood control objectives, improve roadway safety and structural load capacity, and provide a bridge and roadway facility that meets current design standards.
Construction is tentatively scheduled for the summer of 2024.
Bell Road at I-80 Interchange
Currently, traffic at the interchange is controlled by stop signs, slowing the flow of traffic at two increasingly busy intersections. The project would include the nearby Bell Road and Bowman Road intersection in the roundabout design and remove the existing traffic signal there.
This project will reduce congestion and improve safety by creating two multilane roundabouts at the I-80 and Bell Road interchange.

Placer Parkway - Phase I
Placer County Department of Public Works proposes to construct Phase I of the Placer Parkway which will extend from State Route (SR) 65 with the construction of a new roadway to the west, connecting to Foothills Boulevard North. In its full build out condition, Placer Parkway will be a limited access roadway that connects SR65 in Placer County to SR 99 in Sutter County.
