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, Twitter  #DavisRoads  or for email alerts, send an email to:  news@cityofdavis.org

The map shows current and future roadwork around Davis on 2014 and 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.

Bi-Weekly Transportation Update

Bi-weekly update on street closures, downtown parking, and other events affecting transportation

TIMEFRAME: Monday, September 22nd through Sunday, October 5th

Monday, September 22nd - Mid-October:
Putah Creek Bike Path Closure: The portion of the Putah Creek Parkway Bike Path between West Olive Drive and the tunnel under the railroad tracks will be closed for 3 weeks. This portion of the path is located behind Davis Commons and connects the Arboretum to south Davis.

The closure will affect both bicyclists and pedestrians. During the closure bicyclists and pedestrians will be detoured to the Richards Boulevard undercrossing.

The closure is necessary for the City to perform construction work to shore up the steep slopes on either side of the concrete bike path. The City will be adding decomposed granite shoulders on both sides of the path and post and cable fencing at steep slope areas.

Friday, September 26th:
Davis High School Homecoming Parade: Parade units and floats will be  staged on C Street between 3rd and 5th from 11:30 a.m. on. The Homecoming Parade starts at 1:15 p.m. on C Street at 3rd Street. Proposed parade route: 3rd Street east to F Street, north to 4th Street, back to C Street, north on C across 5th Street to 6th Street, west to B Street and north on B Street up to 14th Street and back to Davis High School.

Saturday, September 27th - Sunday, September 28th:
UC Davis Move-In Weekend: Be extra careful for people not familiar with the roads and for cyclists.

Monday, September 29th:
UC Davis Memorial Union Bus Termial: Will reopen. All Unitrans lines will be running again at that time and Yolobus will no longer be serving the temporary bus stops on Russell at Howard Way.  The new terminal will be gated such that only transit buses may enter the terminal, so all traffic that does not enter the parking structure will be directed to Tennis Court Lane, to use the new drop off area or continue west to California.  All deliveries to the campus will be made via California or Hutchison, as they have done all summer. 

Lake Blvd: Work on bike path entrances near Lake Terrace Circle will start no later than Sept 29th and take a couple of weeks, this will patch root damage in bike lanes as well

The contractor will temporarily close portions of CR 32B to through traffic in two non-concurrent phases, each expected to last approximately two weeks. The Stage 1 closure will be between the Davis city limit and the west side of the Yolo Fruit Stand driveway. The Stage 2 closure will be on the east side of the eastbound I-80 ramps to the end of the project at CR32A.
