The City of Folsom is proud to provide effective traffic management services to move residents and visitors efficiently through our beautiful community. Information about current traffic, counts, plans, and programs is listed below.
The Sutter Streetscape project was completed in March 2011 and added over 40 new, on-street parking spaces to the inventory of available parking in the Historic District. Many changes are still in the works for Historic Folsom, and we are still faced with parking challenges.
In Spring 2011, construction commenced on the Historic Folsom Station public plaza improvements, which will permanently eliminate all surface parking in the Railroad Block. It's important that visitors and employees work together to make the best use of parking in Historic Folsom.
The city developed a parking map and accompanying guide to assist motorists to find the best available parking for their needs. To view a parking map that shows the location of all public parking in the Historic District, including any time limits, click on the image below.
We created an information sheet for visitors, customers, employees, and merchants. It includes a few tips and pointers for parking in the Historic District and City of Folsom contact information.
The Active Transportation Master Plan (ATP) will combine and update the master plans for both pedestrian and bicycle facilities in the City of Folsom. The ATP will guide the planning, development, and maintenance of existing and future bicycle and pedestrian facilities within the city, including recommended citywide active transportation network improvements and Safe Routes to School.
This planning effort is made possible by funding from the SACOG 2019 State of Good Repair Planning and Project Development Grant Funding Program.
Draft Active Transportation Plan is Closed for Public Comment
The Draft ATP was open for public comment from March 18 through April 24. City staff are working through the Draft ATP comments and expect to release the Final ATP at the end of May. Final adoption of the ATP will take place in June.
The Final ATP Adoption Hearings:
- Parks & Recreation Commission: 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 7, City Council Chambers
- City Council: 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 14, City Council Chambers
Contact Brett Bollinger, City of Folsom Senior Trails Planner, to receive notifications for upcoming events and plan updates, and to submit questions or comments about the ATP.
Accessible Pedestrian Signals (APS), formerly known as audible pedestrian signals, advise pedestrians who are blind, visually impaired or deaf-blind when they have the right-of-way to cross at a signalized intersection and in which direction they may cross the intersection. The City currently has 11 signalized intersections equipped with APS. City staff will install additional APS on a per-request basis.
To request an Accessible Pedestrian Signal in your neighborhood, contact Zach Bosch at 916-461-6710.
Virtual Community Meeting
The City of Folsom hosted a Virtual Community Meeting for the US 50/Empire Ranch Road Interchange Project on February 24, 2021.

The City of Folsom is currently performing environmental analysis and preliminary design for the US 50/Empire Ranch Road Interchange project. Below is a link to learn more about the project. Please share any questions/comments in the box below.
The interchange will include a four lane overpass with roundabouts at the intersections of the Highway 50 ramp connections to both westbound and eastbound Highway 50, and bicycle and pedestrian facilities. The project will connect with the existing Empire Ranch Road/Iron Point Road intersection to the north, and the future extension of Empire Ranch Road to the south.
A new interchange is needed at this location to connect Empire Ranch Road to Highway 50 and to the new development south of 50. This project will reduce congestion, improve connectivity and safety, and reduce travel time and delay for commuter, recreational, and freight traffic.
Preliminary design and environmental phase began Quarter 1 of 2021, and is expected to be completed by the end of Quarter 3 of 2021. The final design phase will begin in Quarter 4 of 2021, and is expected to be completed by the end of Quarter 2 of 2024. Construction is then expected to begin in Quarter 2 of 2025, and continue until Quarter 4 of 2025, depending on funding availability.
