(PLACERVILLE, CA)—El Dorado County’s Department of Transportation will be performing safety improvements on Francisco Drive in El Dorado Hills at the intersections of Schooner Drive and Kensington Drive. The road closures are scheduled to begin on Monday, July 30, 2018 and continue through Tuesday, July 31, 2018 for grinding, paving, and striping operations.

Access for local residents and visitors, as well as emergency personnel and law enforcement, will be via detour to Sheffield Drive, Lakehills Drive, and Green Valley Road.

“We recognize there is a level of inconvenience to motorists who use these roads, but the closures are necessary to ensure motorist and worker safety while the County’s contractor performs work on the roadway as well as for reduction of overall impact times to the traveling public,” said Department of Transportation director, Rafael Martinez.

Motorists are advised to slow down through the work zone and expect delays during full road closure detours and reversing traffic control. 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 full road closures. The County sincerely appreciates the cooperation and patience of motorists that use this roadway and apologizes for any inconvenience as a result of these closures.,/p>
