In Roseville, a ramp metering traffic signal has been installed by Caltrans to relieve congestion on Highway 65 at the Blue Oaks Boulevard Eastbound entrance to allow for safe merging from the on-ramp to the highway. The meter is being activated by Caltrans.
The ramp metering is necessary to relieve congestion on Highway 65 and to allow for safe merging from the on-ramp to the highway.
Stop and go metering should begin on July 15th and operate from 6 am to 9 am and from 2 pm to 6 pm.
CHP will likely be in the vicinity of the ramp to enforce the new meters.
A traffic study has been completed to set the metering rate. It is expected that the rate of these meters will be similar to other meters within the City of Roseville with a maximum wait time of 2 to 3 minutes and no blocking of city streets. The inersection of Blue Oaks onto southbound Washington should remain unaffected.
For two to three days following the stop and go activation of the ramp meters, Caltrans will have staff on site to monitor and adjust the ramp metering to ensure optimal operation.
