The Sacramento County Department of Transportation is moving forward with construction of the Folsom Blvd. Sidewalk Infill Project on the north side of Folsom Boulevard between Mira Del Rio Drive and Butterfield Way.
Construction is scheduled to begin in July 2020 with completion anticipated in October 2020.
