It starts out as a two-lane roadway, skirting the northern end of the North Natomas development of Sacramento. As it enters the rural community of Rio Linda, the roadway expands to four lanes and remains at least four lanes throughout the remainder of the route. The landscape changes from rural to suburb as it passes through North Highlands and Foothill Farms, where the roadway expands to six lanes at Don Julio Boulevard. As it reaches the interchange with Interstate 80, the route becomes Greenback Lane. Shortly thereafter, it enters the city of Citrus Heights and remains in the city for 3.5 miles (5.6 km). As it exits Citrus Heights and into the community of Fair Oaks, the roadway is reduced to four lanes as it reaches its terminus at Hazel Avenue (County Route E3) in Orangevale. The roadway itself continues as Greenback Lane towards the city of Folsom.

History[edit]

The name "greenback" refers to the use of paper money for financial transactions at a time when gold and silver coin was the preferred rate of exchange. The property that Greenback Lane lies on was bought with greenback dollars (United States Note). The owner is said to have wished to be paid with coin, and became angered when he was not, hence the name "Greenback Lane."[citation needed]

Construction to expand Greenback Lane between Dewey Drive/Van Maren Lane and Auburn Boulevard in Citrus Heights from four to six lanes was completed in 2008, creating an entirely six lane thoroughfare within the city of Citrus Heights.[4][5]
