Demolition is underway of the vacant cement silos in West Sacramento's Pioneer Bluff. The 8 to 10 week demolition project sets the stage for the City of West Sacramento's next transformation of riverfront in the region's urban core, with a mixed-use, sustainable neighborhood planned for new housing, retail and office buildings. The 180-foot tall silos were originally constructed over 50 years ago, to store cement when the riverfront was characterized by industrial use. The property's owner, CEMEX Cement, relocated to the Port of West Sacramento in 2009, leaving the silos empty since then.

Construction of the Mike McGowan Bridge in West Sacramento is underway. The new bridge will link South River Road across the Barge Canal, adding a third connection between the north and south portions of the city.
The Mike McGowan Bridge will improve traffic circulation on the eastern side of the city. The bridge provides an alternate vehicular route from Highway 50 to Southport, thereby reducing traffic delays on Jefferson Boulevard and Highway 50/Business 80 associated with goods movement at the Port of West Sacramento and other rail users in the West Sacramento industrial area.
Project completion is expected in late 2014.
