The Connector is a 34-mile expressway
connecting Interstate 5 to Highway 50.
EASIER ACCESS TO JOBS | REDUCED CONGESTION | MORE EFFICIENT GOODS MOVEMENT
INCREASED SAFETY | SIGNIFICANT ECONOMIC IMPACT
The Connector is divided into independent segments
for ease of construction and project funding
The overall Connector project is divided into five segments - identified as A, B, C, D and E moving from west to east. These broad identifiers are based on geographic and jurisdictional boundaries, roadway classification, and adjacent community characteristics. For increased flexibility related to the timing of funding availability, the five segments contain individual projects that are being delivered independently as local priorities dictate.
The project’s first phase includes construction of four continuous lanes from Interstate 5 and Highway 99 in Elk Grove to the new Silva Valley interchange at Highway 50 in El Dorado Hills, expanded at-grade intersections at all major access points, and a continuous path for pedestrians, bicyclists and equestrians.
A True Multi-Modal Facility
The Connector will have a dedicated Class 1 multi-use path along its entire corridor, creating the longest Class 1 trail in the Sacramento region at 34 miles.
Environmentally & Community Sensitive Design
The Connector’s design will help preserve open space, habitat and agriculture, and maintain the livability of neighboring communities through:
