The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Sacramento District and its contractor Kiewit Infrastructure will conduct traffic control operations as part of the Folsom Dam Auxiliary Spillway construction project August 17 through September 1, forcing temporary delays on Folsom Point Access Road.
Traffic control flaggers will stop all traffic from entering or exiting Folsom Point intermittently from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday to allow construction equipment to move through the area.
Safety signs will be in place to alert all drivers, bicyclists and pedestrians of impending delays.
The auxiliary spillway project is being constructed under the Corps’ Folsom Dam Modification Project, also called the Joint Federal Project, to implement dam safety and flood risk reduction features at Folsom Dam and associated facilities to help prevent catastrophic flooding in the Sacramento region. The auxiliary spillway is on track for completion in October 2017.
