Too Many Accidents at Fair Oaks Blvd. and Old Auburn Rd.

An intersection in Citrus Heights is under fire by neighbors who say it is too dangerous after three crashes in less than 48 hours over Thanksgiving. It is located at Fair Oaks Boulevard and Old Auburn Road. Neighbors such as Jesse Durham are worried about their safety. To prevent damage to the neighbors’ property, barriers have been erected. However, Durham notes that there is always the worry that the barriers will be knocked down, and the next crash could be in his backyard. Durham has witnessed 10 crashes since moving into the neighborhood three years ago. The longest stretch of barriers is adjacent to Durham’s property, and he said you always have it in the back of your mind that a vehicle could end up in your bedroom. Aside from recent activity, the intersection near his home, Durham says, has been an issue for a long time.
