(Placerville, CA) – The Transportation Division of El Dorado County’s Community Development Agency will be performing road work on Cold Springs Road between Skyview Lane and 500 feet northwest of Mount Shasta Lane. The work is anticipated to begin on June 2, 2016 and continue through September 2016. The construction work will require lane closures with one-way reversing traffic control through June and into July, with two separate five (5) day (Monday – Friday) full road closures with detours. Motorists should expect delays from June through the beginning of August.
The closures are necessary to ensure motorist and worker safety while the County’s contractor performs work on the roadway and to reduce the overall impact to the traveling public. The improvements involve realignment of two existing curves and include roadway excavation, pavement, guardrail, fencing, drainage ditches and drainage system improvements, roadway signs and striping.
Motorists are advised to slow down through the work zone and expect delays during reversing traffic control and road closure detours. Motorists are also advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work zone in order to arrive at their destinations on time. Traffic control is expected to be in effect through June and into July from approximately 7:00 am through 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday for reversing controls. Then, tentatively in late July and early August, two separate full closures with maximum five (5) day durations will be utilized to complete grading, paving and drainage system construction operations. Full closures will take place Monday through Friday only, and does not include holidays, weekends or when school is in session. Portable changeable message signs will be placed at the approaches to each end of the work zone to keep motorists updated on the schedule for closures.
The County sincerely appreciates the cooperation and patience of motorists that use these roadway facilities.
