The Folsom City Council joined federal, state, and regional officials on Wednesday, May 5, to break ground on the Capital SouthEast Connector project – a 34-mile expressway that will fill a critical gap by connecting Interstate 5 and State Route 99 south of Elk Grove to Highway 50 east of El Dorado Hills.
The Capital SouthEast Connector is the Sacramento region’s largest approved transportation project. Construction activity is underway at three locations: White Rock Road (between Prairie City Road and East Bidwell Street), Kammerer Road (between Bruceville Road and Lotz Parkway), and Grant Line Road (between Waterman Road and Bradshaw Road).
The project will connect the southern area of Sacramento County to El Dorado County in the east and serve as a connection between Elk Grove, Rancho Cordova, and Folsom. The Connector will provide access to jobs, reduce congestion, increase efficient goods movement, improve safety, and create a significant positive economic impact. Learn more at
