Grantline and Highway 99 interchange

City of Elk Grove

Grant Line Road/​State Route 99 Interchange Reconstruction Project

Fast-track environmental review was required for mandated reconstruction and expansion of a highway interchange.

Grant Line Road and State Route 99 InterchangeThe Grant Line Road/State Route 99 interchange in Elk Grove was identified as needing expansion to serve development of the Promenade shopping mall (formerly known as Lent Ranch Mall). At the time, the project was fast-tracked as the critical path to mall construction. The team met the aggressive schedule, provided complete and efficient environmental review, and identified mitigation measures that would allow the construction to proceed on schedule.

As project manager, working with a former employer, Debra Lilly managed preparation of the EIR and coordinated efficient review of technical studies and other documents between City planning staff and Caltrans/FHWA reviewers. Key issues included traffic, noise, and recordation of historic structures to be removed or affected by expansion of the interchange.

Charlane Gross served as cultural resources task manager, conducted Native American consultation, and revised the previous Historic Property Survey Report to fit the new Caltrans format Historical Resource Compliance Report.

Project Tasks

  • Worked effectively with City staff, project engineers, and Caltrans reviewers
  • Coordinated Caltrans/FHWA technical studies and incorporated them into the EIR
  • Prepared HRCR

Changing Times

In the aftermath of the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, development review in Elk Grove required evaluation of potential impacts related to the Suburban Propane manufacturing plant in the southern part of the city.

The Grant Line Road/State Route 99 EIR was the first to incorporate a comprehensive risk analysis of possible effects from various disaster scenarios at the propane facility.
