Project Description and Benefits

The Highway 99 Soundwall Community Safety and Enhancement Project is an important step forward in Caltrans' efforts to improve community safety and aesthetics along the Highway 99 corridor in the Sacramento area between 12th Avenue and 47th Avenue. 

Caltrans is proposing to sell the excess land situated between the soundwall and the adjacent property owners along the east side of the highway right-of-way. This will help alleviate criminal activity, improve public safety, and eliminate illegal trash dumping. 

To accomplish this, Caltrans is working in partnership with the City of Sacramento and Sacramento County to effectively engage property owners. This will also benefit Caltrans by reducing demand on Caltrans maintenance crews. 

Project Outreach

Community outreach for this project began in Fall 2009. To date, outreach has taken the form of door-to-door communications with property owners. All outreach will take place in English, Spanish, and other languages as needed.

Caltrans held two community meetings for this project. The first on Monday, October 25th, 2011 from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm at the Fruitridge Community Center. The second meeting occurred on Wednesday, January 26, 2011 at Pacific Elementary School. Meetings targeted the participation of property owners and residents in the project area.
