2018 Construction

Arcade Creek & NEMDC Levee Work - This work is part of the North Sacramento Streams, Sacramento River East Levee, Lower American River, and Related Flood Improvements Project for Levee Accreditation. Construction is anticipated to start during the late spring and includes the following activities:

  • Cutoff Wall Construction along Steelhead Creek between West El Camino Avenue and Arcade Creek along the east levee, Arcade Creek between Steelhead Creek and Marysville Boulevard along the south levee, and Arcade Creek between Norwood Avenue and Marysville Boulevard along the north levee.
  • Borrow Area & Haul Routes - Soil will be hauled from the excavation site located near the Wolf Ranch Wildlife Sanctuary and will be hauled by trucks along Steelhead Creek. The creek will be crossed in several locations and the route will also utilize the West El Camino Avenue bridge.

Robla Creek Woodland Mitigation and Enhancement Project
In October 2017 work began to prepare the area along the north bank of Robla Creek, west of Rio Linda Boulevard, to create a woodland area to mitigate for tree removal associated with the levee work that began earlier in 2017 and will continue in 2018 along Arcade Creek and Steelhead Creek (also referred to as the Natomas East Main Drainage Canal or NEMDC) and is also described above.
