Why not finish the road work?

We recently moved back to Placer County and love the area. We were not surprised to see the long-planned widening of Auburn Folsom Road. It’s great except for the half-mile left undone just south of Douglas (Boulevard). It creates a bottleneck every day like clockwork and drastically reduces the benefit of the project. There is probably some background, or political process that occurred prior to arrival, which left this one short stretch un-widened. This short bottleneck has been a frequent topic of conversation among many of our neighbors and friends. We don’t understand how this was left undone, and wonder how much more it will cost to complete it later as a stand-alone project? Please tell me there is a good reason for this. Paul Redd, Loomis
