The City of Citrus Heights’ General Services Department announced on Thursday that upcoming storm drainage improvement work will result in the closure of one southbound lane of Sunrise Boulevard on a short section of roadway between Sayonara Drive and Arcade Creek.

The project is scheduled to begin Aug. 2 and continue through Sept. 15, with construction work taking place from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, according to a news release from the city.

The $212,000 drainage project was approved by the city council in June and awarded to Martin General Engineering as the lowest bidder, according to a June 8 staff report. The project includes installation of 435 linear feet of new storm drain pipe, along with a new manhole at the intersection of Sayonara Drive and Sunrise Boulevard.

An existing storm drain at the location “is undersized and does not meet current standards,” according to the staff report.

Northbound lanes of Sunrise Boulevard will not be affected.
