Hazel Avenue Improvement

Road construction with dirt-filled trench, wooden forms, workers, and "Road Closed" sign.

The Sacramento County Board of Supervisors approved the Hazel Avenue Improvement project in September 2006. The purpose of this “Complete Street” project is to reduce congestion and increase safety and mobility for all modes of transportation along the two-mile stretch of Hazel Avenue between U.S. Highway 50 and Madison Avenue. The overall project includes the following major elements:

  • Widening Hazel Avenue from four to six lanes between Madison Avenue and Gold Country Boulevard, including the American River Bridge.
  • Provide 5-foot bicycle lanes on each side of the street and 10-foot sidewalks separated from the roadway by an 8-foot landscaped buffer strip.
  • Replace existing dual, left-turn lanes with a median wide enough to include large trees and other landscaping elements.
  • Modify signalized intersections to permit left-hand and U-turns and to provide for pedestrian crossings.
  • Improved accessibility to the American River Parkway and other recreational areas.
