The City of Folsom Planning Commission is recommending the City Council ask the voters for approval of a 34-mile highway connector from Interstate 5, south of Elk Grove, to Highway 50 at the Silva Valley Parkway interchange east of El Dorado Hills along White Rock Road. 

The $315 million project's first phase would be part of the Folsom Specific Plan not scheduled for construction until 2019 with completion around 2025.

The city sees continued growth and anticipates more traffic and with it, economic benefit from the connector.
