Southreach is Kind of a Lame Name
For a subdivision. A rapidly expanding city like Roseville often grabs what land it can, and in places like Southreach where industry is very close, so are houses.
Southreach, as suggested by the name, is Roseville's most southern reaching chunk of real estate. Bordered by farmlands, two state highways, and a rail line, the community is extremely isolated.
Fortunately for residents, commute time is extremely small, and a trip to downtown isn't so bad either.
A Little Name Drop
Remember SR1? Well here it is heading due west to a city just being established named Rocketland. Rocketland features many farms and industy, and as you can tell, many Rosevillains and Ramsesans are starting to head there for new job opportunity. The bad news is, we're not looking at Rocketland today. The good news is that we will get our first real glimse at Roseville by checking out the two most southern neighborhoods, Southreach and South Roseville.
The community of Southreach lies on the opposite side of SR2 as the Rose River. The only access the inhabitants have anywhere is via these ramps. SR2 was expanded when Southreach was established to help take on the influx of new traffic.
Southreach is strange in that it has no town center, but rather this nice little fountain. The houses spur off of the boulevards to the north and south of the fountain.
North of the fountain.
South of the fountain.
SR2 rolls right into South Roseville, a small suburbanish community just south of University District.
South Roseville town center is small, but has a medium train station to ferry passengers to the South End Industrial Park just across the river,
You can really tell you're getting into Roseville when you see the traffic filled boulevards and apartments filling up every little crevice possible.
Besides rail, the other main entrance to the SEIP is via this bridge. Here we can see the community in its near entirety. Traffic flow through the area has increased greatly in recent times. Much is due to expansion of Downtown and the new city of Rocketland.

Thanks for viewing! More Roseville soon to come!
