Highway 50 and Zinfandel Drive Interchange Improvements

Construction on Highway 50 and Zinfandel Drive Interchange Improvements is anticipated to begin the week of June 17, 2019, weather permitting. The project will add an additional lane on Zinfandel Drive over Highway 50, modify the highway entrance and exit ramps, add bicycle lanes and modify traffic signals. This project is designed to improve operations, alleviate congestion and provide safer routes for drivers, bikers and pedestrians on Zinfandel Drive from White Rock Road to Olson Drive, referred to as the Zinfandel Complex. Click here for a project map.

The project is anticipated to be completed by March 2020, weather permitting. Project construction will take place Monday-Friday between 8 AM-5 PM, and some night work will be incorporated. Stay tuned to this webpage for schedule updates.

Please expect traffic delays during construction, drive, bike and walk with caution, and reduce speeds in construction areas. Detours will be in place during the night work portion of the project.


Free $5 to Ride with a Lyft at SacRT in Rancho Cordova

With the support of a $75,000 grant from the Sacramento Area Council of Governments (SACOG), the City of Rancho Cordova is partnering with Lyft to launch a pilot program to encourage Sacramento Regional Transit District (SacRT) ridership in the City by helping to reduce transit access barriers.

The new pilot program, called “Free $5 to Ride,” provides SacRT riders with a Lyft coupon code (RCFREE5) worth up to $5. The coupon code can be used toward a Lyft ride that begins or ends at one of the four SacRT light rail stations in Rancho Cordova, up to 60 times per month. The concept is predicated on providing commuters traveling to and from Rancho Cordova via SacRT with alternatives to first mile/last mile connections, reducing the need to drive alone and ultimately increasing transit usage.
