The Sacramento County Department of Transportation (SACDOT) is planning an improvement project on Fair Oaks Boulevard (Howe Avenue to Munroe Street) to create a "complete street" that will benefit people walking, biking, driving, and using public transit.
With the aid and input of the community, the project will construct two signalized pedestrian crossings on Fair Oaks Boulevard and develop a multi-modal streetscape master plan.
Improvements to the corridor are planned in multiple phases, with funding currently allocated specifically for Phase One improvements.
Phase One of the Fair Oaks Boulevard Complete Streets project includes the planning, design, and construction of two signalized pedestrian crossings on Fair Oaks Boulevard. This phase is fully funded through a grant from the Sacramento Area Council of Governments (SACOG) 2014 Bicycle and Pedestrian Funding Program.
This phase also includes the preparation of a master plan with the primary goal of creating a complete street. The master plan for the Fair Oaks Boulevard corridor from Howe Avenue to Munroe Street will include concepts to improve pedestrian, bicycle, public transit, and motorist mobility.
Future phases of the project will construct the improvements developed in the master planning effort in Phase One. Construction of future phases is reliant on future funding availability.
- Improve mobility of pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists, and transit users.

- The project is funded by a grant from the Sacramento Area Council of Governments (SACOG) 2014 Bicycle and Pedestrian Funding Program.
