Davis Road Construction Projects

The City has several construction projects that will upgrade and improve City streets. To minimize construction disruptions, we have developed this website to provide information on the projects and alert travelers to expected traffic disruptions. As construction begins, we will update this site with new information on traffic impacts and detours. To receive automatic alerts of these updates, please sign up for the RSS Feed, or for email alerts, send an email to:  news@cityofdavis.org

The map shows current and future roadwork around Davis in 2014. For project details, including the timing, location, description, benefits, traffic impacts, and project manager, refer to the project details below. 

Construction schedules will be updated periodically and on a weekly basis after construction begins. For more information, contact the project manager listed. This map only shows major construction projects.
