Grant Line Road Closure This Weekend

Grant Line Road Closure This Weekend

Elk Grove, CA --  A portion of Grant Line Road will be closed this weekend to finish a pavement overlay project that will reduce traffic noise and provide a safer driving surface. 

The project has required the closure of portions of Grant Line Road 24 hours a day on the weekends of Oct. 6 and Oct. 13.  Due to lower-than-expected evening temperatures, a third weekend has been added to the construction schedule to complete the project. 

Grant Line Road will be closed beginning Saturday, Oct. 20 at 5:30 a.m. and will reopen again by Monday, Oct. 22 at 5:30 a.m.

The joint project between the City of Elk Grove and Sacramento County will resurface the entire width of Grant Line Road between Mosher Road and Elk Grove Blvd., including all approaches at the intersection of Elk Grove Blvd.  The existing pavement has surpassed its life expectancy and has become prone to potholes.

Create Real Impact: Distracted Driving Kills

What is Create Real Impact? It is a contest designed to get drivers informed about the dangers of distracted driving , and it was created by Impact Teen Drivers.

Impact Teen Drivers was formed in response to a high number of car accidents involving teenagers, which California Highway Patrol officers tended to. The purpose of this organization is to educate teenagers, their parents, and community members about the importance of responsible driving, hoping to reduce the amount of  injuries and deaths caused by distracted driving.

Distracted driving kills, and it is the leading cause of death in teens. But something like this shouldn't be. Deaths caused by distracted driving could have been prevented, and Impact Teen Drivers is aware of this and wants all of us to be aware as well.
