Construction activities related to the Sacramento Regional Transit Districtís (RT) Blue Line to Cosumnes River College (CRC) light rail extension project will require a complete closure of Meadowview Road between Detroit Boulevard and Brookfield Drive (at the Union Pacific Railroad - UPRR tracks) beginning at 8 p.m. on Friday, January 16, 2015, and continuing until 5 a.m. on Monday, January 26, 2015.

RT's contractor will be installing light rail tracks across Meadowview Road as part of the Blue Line to CRC project. In addition to installing light rail tracks at this site, Meadowview Road between the UPRR tracks and Detroit Boulevard must be reconstructed. Work will include rebuilding the curb, gutter and sidewalk in this area, completely removing the roadway, and re-paving this section of Meadowview Road.

Motorists are advised to use alternate routes. The main detour will be 24th Street to Florin Road to Franklin Boulevard, and vice versa. Motorists can also use Freeport Boulevard or Center Parkway to travel to Florin Road.

RT will provide updates on Facebook (facebook/SacramentoRT), Twitter (@RideSacRT) and the project website (blueline2crc.com).

The Blue Line to CRC project will extend light rail 4.3 miles from the existing terminus at Meadowview Road to Cosumnes River College. Scheduled to open in September 2015, the light rail extension will feature four new light rail stations (Morrison Creek, Franklin, Center Parkway and Cosumnes River College).

As with any construction, dates are subject to change based on weather and other conditions. To sign up for construction alerts, visit blueline2crc.com or call the project information line at 916-556-0113.
