Highway 65 Lincoln Bypass Grand Opening Celebration set for
October 5, 2012
Save the date for the grand opening of Placer County’s largest infrastructure project.
LINCOLN –The Placer County Transportation Planning Agency will host the grand opening celebration ceremony of the Highway 65 Lincoln Bypass on Friday October 5th at 10:00 a.m. Completion of this monumental $325 million project was accomplished through partnerships between the Placer County Transportation Planning Agency, Caltrans, the City of Lincoln, Placer County, the South Placer Regional Transportation Authority, and the federal government.
The Lincoln Bypass will provide a new thoroughfare for Highway 65 through the Lincoln area. The 11.7 mile Bypass begins at Industrial Boulevard, moves traffic around the City of Lincoln, and will connect back to the existing Highway 65 near Sheridan.
“It is phenomenal to have such a large scale infrastructure project built in Placer County,” said Celia McAdam, Executive Director of the Placer County Transportation Planning Agency. “This project was possible because of the support between the Federal, State and Local jurisdictions.”
The Bypass will improve regional connections between residential areas, employment centers, and major commercial centers. In addition to improving interregional goods movement and reducing congestion, the Bypass will improve safety and traffic mobility and address current and future travel demands between the City of Lincoln and the town of Sheridan.
