Sacramento, CA – The Sacramento County Department of Transportation is alerting motorists that upcoming White Road Improvement Project work has been rescheduled. The initial closure included an overnight, 24-hour closure of White Rock Road from Grant Line Road to Prairie City Road from October 18 to 19. The closure has been rescheduled to next weekend. Information about the rescheduled closure is listed below:

  • Date/Time: From 9 p.m. on Friday October 25, to 9 p.m. on Saturday, October 26, White Rock Road from Grant Line Road to Prairie City Road will be closed to all vehicles.
  • Detours: Eastbound motorists can take Douglas Road to Sunrise Boulevard. Westbound motorists can take Scott Road to U.S. 50. Access will be maintained for emergency vehicles and visitors to the Prairie City Vehicular Recreation Area (PCVRA) during these closure periods. Access from White Rock Road and Grant Line Road from the west and White Rock Road from the east will be closed. Visitors to PCVRA must enter via Prairie City Road, and flaggers will guide vehicles to the facility.

Roadway Construction: This road closure is needed as part of the White Road Road Improvement project. White Rock Road is being realigned to intersect with Grant Line Road approximately 700 feet south of the existing intersection. The road will be widened to two lanes in each direction, with paved shoulders and medians. Check for updated project information and to sign up for automatic email updates.

Your Patience is Appreciated: Sacramento County understands the challenges and inconvenience that commuters, residents, businesses, bicyclists and pedestrians will experience during the closure period. The patience and cooperation of the traveling public is appreciated as we work to complete this project.
