Placer County hosts community meeting June 18 to discuss Kings Beach Western Approach project

Published on June 6, 2019

Placer County will host a community meeting June 18 on the proposed Kings Beach Western Approach project, intended to improve connectivity between west Kings Beach and its downtown core.  

If approved, the project would reconfigure the state Route 28 and SR 267 intersection; restripe SR 28 to one lane in each direction with a two-way left turn lane; and add sidewalks and bike lanes up SR 267 to Dolly Varden Avenue. These changes are being proposed to improve overall accessibility, mobility and safety for all roadway users while providing a continuous complete street project that will accommodate all modes of travel to include pedestrians, bikes, vehicles and transit.

County staff will provide an overview of the project, status and the project planning process. Residents will have the opportunity to ask questions about and offer feedback on the project.  

Goals of the project include:

  • Improving safety and mobility for bicycles and pedestrians.
  • Providing a complete street project that connects to the Kings Beach Commercial Core Improvement Project.
  • Maintaining consistency with local, regional and state planning.
