About

The City of West Sacramento commenced construction of the Grand Gateway / Washington District Infrastructure Project on November 13, 2017. The project will add a new segment of 7th Street connecting West Capitol Avenue to Tower Bridge Gateway and a new traffic signal at the Tower Bridge Gateway – 7th Street intersection. It will also create a Grand Gateway entrance to the City core where the Bridge District, Washington District and Downtown converge. In addition, the project will add and replace over 10,000 lineal feet of storm drain, water and sewer mains to facilitate development in the historic Washington District. Multi-modal transportation improvements will incorporate way-finding and public art to the Riverfront and will better accommodate transit, bicycles, pedestrians and automobiles.
