Mt. Aukum Road Sink Hole

Mt Aukum Road Mt Aukum Road 2

Project Location: Mt. Aukum Road between Happy Valley Road and the North Fork Consumnes River Bridge

Project Description:‚Äč An existing culvert, varying in depth from 34-feet to 54-feet under Mt. Aukum Road is failing.  One sink hole was discovered on January 31, 2017.  Temporary repairs were performed on February 1, 2017 in an effort to keep the roadway open for public use. On February 7, 2017 additional sinkholes were observed in the slopes adjacent the roadway and in line with the existing culvert.  Transportation staff determined that the road was unsafe for motorists and ordered a full closure of both lanes of Mt. Aukum Road between Happy Valley Road and the North Fork Consumnes River Bridge.  Geotechnical investigation has been performed and Transportation staff are currently developing plans and specifications for a full culvert replacement.  

Please check back for updates, including projected schedule and projected road opening dates.
