Shhhh...."freeway" in California is a bad word now.  You can't say it.  Call it a "Parkway", or an "Enhanced Arterial", and make up all kinds of garbage to apologize for building a controlled access highway.  Just don't call it a freeway.

A $20 million grant was secured earlier this year for the Capital Southeast Connector project:

This is a proposed Expressway designed to be an alternative route to I-80 and US-50 that's is being discussed so far to be a 4 lane route from El Dorado Hills to Elk Grove. Total length of this route is 34 miles.

Interesting.  This sounds kind of like the SR 148 proposal from decades ago.  I see that there's a Joint Powers Authority administering it.  Maybe they're working like the State Route 4 Bypass Authority in eastern Contra Costa County -- upgrading the corridor independent of Caltrans or any other traditional jurisdiction.

Physically, it's likely the corridor will use Caltrans templates for suburban/rural expressway in a similar fashion to Riverside County's deployment of the Domengoni Parkway in the Hemet/Menifee area a decade back.  The concept then was to eventually reroute CA 74 over that facility and get it off State Street through Hemet.   The Sacramento-area project doesn't replace any existing state facilities, though -- although eventually the CA 148 designation may be applied to the final product more for navigational purposes than anything (and it would get Caltrans off the fiscal hook as far as developing the long-dormant 148 corridor is concerned) -- although undoubtedly considerable state funds would be mixed into the project development.  Ironically 74 x 2 = 148!
