Down under and almost over
During the past few months, Regional Sanitation crews have installed 8,300 feet of new sewer pipe under Folsom Boulevard. To date, the pipeline has been installed up to Buffalo Creek, or about halfway between Sunrise Blvd. and Aerojet Rd. Crews will continue with construction for approximately six more months. During the sewer pipe installation, crews will be working to widen Folsom Blvd., and extend light rail tracks to the City of Folsom.
