Road Construction on Auburn-Folsom

Travelers along Auburn Folsom Road, between Loomis and Granite Bay, may want to allow for a little extra travel time during the next several months.  Placer County Environmental Engineering is scheduled to begin construction of a new pump station and 2.5 miles of new sewer pipeline.

      The sewer pipeline will be installed along Auburn Folsom Road, extending from the Sewer Maintenance District 3 Wastewater Treatment Plant near Dick Cook Road, to existing sewer pipelines near Twin Rocks Road.  The new pump station will be constructed on the existing site.

      County engineers say this project is necessary to comply with an enforcement order from the Central Valley Regional Water Quality Control Board and will convey wastewater from Horseshoe Bar area to existing sewer lines in Granite Bay area for treatment at the Dry Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant in Roseville.

      Construction activities along Auburn Folsom Road are scheduled from May 2013 through February 2014 with crews normally working weekdays from 6:00 am – 6:00 pm and Saturdays from 8:00 am – 6:00 pm. 

Placer County Environmental Engineering has obtained $3.9 million in grant funds from the United States Army Corps of Engineers, a County Treasury Loan for $2.8 million, $900,000 from the County’s General Fund, and is in the process of securing a $6.2 million loan from the Clean Water Act State Revolving Fund for this $13.8 million project.
