Local Roadway Projects

North Connector


The North Connector Project (Project) planned and delivered by the Solano Transportation Authority (STA) consists of the construction of two sections of roadway, referred to as the West End and the East End. The purpose of the Project is to create additional east-west capacity north of Interstate 80 (I-80) for local traffic which currently must use I-80.

The East End (or the Suisun Parkway Segment of the North Connector) is located between Suisun Creek and the Chadbourne Road undercrossing of SR 12 East and is approximately 2.7 miles long. This Segment includes improvements at I-80 ramps with Abernathy Road and at SR-12 Eastbound off-ramp with Chadbourne Road Undercrossing within State right of way. The Suisun Parkway Segment opened to traffic November 8, 2010.

The Central and Hook Segment (Business Center Drive) is located between Suisun Creek and Suisun Valley Road, and is approximately 1.3 miles long. Improvements include 1.3 miles of new 4-lane roadway, new bridge over Dan Wilson Creek, and a wetlands habitat and stormwater detention basin. This segment was constructed by the City of Fairfield in partnership with Garaventa Properties. The Central segment also opened to traffic November 8, 2010.

The West End is located between SR 12 West/Red Top Road intersection and Business Center Drive and is approximately 1 mile long. This segment will be constructed in future years as funding becomes available.

Travis Air Force Base Gate Access Improvements


The Travis Air Force Base gate improvements are split
into two projects: North Gate Improvements and South
Gate Improvements.

The South Gate improvements ($3.0 M) will include
widening Peterson Road and adding a third “truck
stacking lane”, which leads to the Travis AFB guard
station, to handle the large number of truck deliveries.

The North Gate improvements ($7.6 M) will include
widening Canon Road from Vanden Road (Jepson
Parkway) to the Travis AFB guard station.

The project is currently under environmental review and could potentially begin construction by 2014.


Central County Bikeway

Central County Bikeway Project


Central County Bikeway Opening

The Central County bikeway is one of four priority bicycle projects of the STA Board as recommended by the STA Bicycle Advisory Committee in the Solano Countywide Bicycle Plan.

The STA has supported Suisun City in constructing the Gap Closure for its benefit in providing alternative modes options to access Suisun City to Suisun's Historic Waterfront Downtown District, Downtown Fairfield, County buildings, and Suisun City's Capitol Corridor Train Station.

A ribbon-cutting was held October 22, 2009 in completion of the 3-mile segment of a proposed 310 miles of planned and completed intercity and intra city bike routes included in the Solano Countywide Bike Plan.


Rio Vista Waterfront Promenade


Rio Vista Waterfront Promenade

Rio Vista Bridge Waterfront

The Rio Vista Waterfront Promenade is a pilot project along the Sacramento River Delta that provides the foundation for public access to the Delta along a key transportation route connecting the Delta to the Statewide transportation routes, the North San Francisco Bay Area, the invaluable agricultural areas of Solano County and the Central Valley, and the greater Sacramento metropolitan area.

This multimodal facility (pedestrian, bicycle, boating access) is designed to be an alternative transportation project to help the region address global climate change by creatively providing a recreational facility that reduces vehicle emission by encouraging alternative transportation.

The STA has been integrally involved in promotion of the project and STA staff has provided significant assistance in helping the City form the regulatory document. The Napa-Solano Air Quality Management District awarded grants to promote implementation of the waterfront promenade project as the District supports the potential vehicle miles travelled (VMT) reductions associated with the Plan.

A ribbon-cutting was held October 23, 2009 to celebrate this exciting step for the City of Rio Vista, the largest of the Delta's legacy cities.
