In September 2011, the Board of Supervisors approved The Fair Oaks Boulevard Corridor Plan to help guide revitalization and enhancement of Fair Oaks Boulevard. The overall goal of the plan is to facilitate development of a pedestrian-oriented town center for the Carmichael community including a "main street."
The Department of Transportation's "main street" began effort with a Phase 1 project for improvements to the Fair Oaks Boulevard at Marconi Avenue intersection. The Phase 2 project was built on Phase 1 work with major pedestrian, bicycle and roadway enhancements from south of Landis Avenue to Engle Road. Phase 2 construction was completed in 2017. These projects fit in with SACOG's Blueprint effort to promote compact, mixed-use development and more transit choices.
Phase 3 will complete the missing improvements on Fair Oaks Boulevard from north of Marconi Avenue to Landis Avenue.
