At this time, there is no state or federal funding to build the Placer Parkway. Currently, there are two regional funding sources for the future Placer Parkway. The first is SPRTA’s Regional Transportation and Air Quality Mitigation Fee program, which provides partial funding for several regional transportation and transit projects/programs. This fee program is expected to collect approximately $10 million for the Placer Parkway.
The second is the Tier II Development Fee program (effective May 27, 2009) to fund the Placer Parkway and SR 65/I-80 interchange improvements. This fee program was adopted by the cities of Lincoln, Rocklin, Roseville, and Placer County. Funding from this program will contribute $475 million toward a four-lane Placer Parkway (in Placer County). Two additional lanes (generated by existing development need) will be paid through other sources such as potential future state or federal funding, or through another local source, such as a transportation sales tax.
Sutter County will be responsible for approximately $100 million toward Parkway funding (for construction in Sutter County) . They expect to obtain these funds through development of the Sutter Pointe Specific Plan.
