(PLACERVILLE, CA) - El Dorado County’s Department of Transportation will be performing road work
with full road closures on Peavine Ridge Road beginning on Tuesday, September 19, 2017. Repairs are
scheduled to continue through October 30, 2017.
“These closures are necessary to ensure motorist and worker safety while the County’s contractor performs
work on the roadway,” said Department of Transportation director, Rafael Martinez. “The repairs consist of
drainage, roadway, and ditch improvements to repair a failed culvert and section of the roadway that was
damaged during the storms in January and February earlier this year.”
The roadway is currently closed due to the damage of the washed out section of Peavine Ridge Road and is
intended to remain closed throughout the duration of this Project. Access for local residents, visitors,
emergency personnel and law enforcement will be available on Peavine Ridge Road via Mill Run to the west
and the entrance to Peavine Ridge Road from U.S. Highway 50 to the east as an alternate route during the work
period. Detour notifications will be posted approximately one week in advance of the closure, and will be
clearly posted and in effect for the duration of the closure.
The County sincerely appreciates the cooperation and patience of motorists that use these roadway facilities and
we apologize for any inconvenience as a result of this closure.
