Grand Opening for Village Parkway South

A ribbon cutting ceremony marked the opening today of Village Parkway South. The new road, complete with marked bike lanes, replaces S. River Road, which is being removed as part of the Southport Levee Improvement Project. Village Parkway South provides access to property owners affected by the levee work. It’s also an important north/south corridor through this rural section of West Sacramento, improving emergency response time and extending the City’s bike lane network.

This roadway completes Phase 1 of the levee project, which when finished, will provide Southport with six miles of fortified flood protection.
