Green Valley Road is a county-maintained east-west arterial and regional connector that provides parallel capacity to US Highway 50, and extends 17 miles from the El Dorado/Sacramento County Line to the City of Placerville. The roadway is primarily two-lanes, except for 4-lanes between Sophia Parkway and Francisco Drive. The west end is near Sophia Parkway and the east end is at Placerville Drive. The average daily traffic ranges from 4,000 (near Greenstone Road) to 27,000 at Francisco Drive.
On July 30, 2013, the Board directed staff to move forward with a corridor analysis for Green Valley Road, and return with an identified funding source, draft scope of work, estimated cost and schedule for the project.
On September 30, 2013, the Board directed staff to extend the study limits to Lotus Road, authorized the use of the General Fund to begin the project and purchase the Synchro software necessary to do intersection level micro analysis, and directed staff to consider holding two public meetings to solicit input on the draft scope of work.
On October 24, 2103, an initial public scoping meeting was held at Pleasant Grove Middle School to gather public comments for the Green Valley Corridor.
On December 17, 2013, the Board was presented with three alternatives for a scope of work for the Green Valley Road Corridor Analysis. Alternative 1 included only the original scope presented to the Board on September 30, 2013 with the additional limits extended to Lotus Road; Alternative 2 included all of Alternative 1 plus select items that were requested by the public; and Alternative 3 included all of Alternative 1 plus all public requests that address existing conditions along the Green Valley Road Corridor. The Board directed staff to proceed with Alternative 3, expanding the period of time for traffic analysis to Monday through Friday accordingly, and to appropriate funds for the selected consultant from the General Fund Contingency.
On March 18, 2014, the Board approved a contract with Kittelson & Associates, Inc. to assist in the completion of the analysis of current conditions on Green Valley Road and provide recommendations on potential mitigations for the Corridor.
