Hwy 50 to CLOSE Sunday Morning

by Placerville Newswire / Feb 20, 2016 / comments

The Transportation Division of El Dorado County’s Community Development Agency will implement full closures of both directions of U.S. Highway 50 between El Dorado Hills Boulevard and Bass Lake Road, as well as closures of the Latrobe Road on-ramp to eastbound Highway 50, the Bass Lake Road on-ramp to westbound Highway 50 and White Rock Road between Valley View Parkway and Entrada Circle.

Closures are as follows:

Eastbound closures on Sunday morning, Feb. 21 — eastbound lanes from Latrobe Road to Bass Lake Road will be closed from 6 to 8 and the eastbound on-ramp at El Dorado Hills Boulevard/Latrobe Road will be closed from 4 to 8.

Westbound closures on Sunday morning, Feb. 21 — westbound lanes from Bass Lake Road to El Dorado Hills Boulevard/Latrobe Road will be closed from 6 to 8 and the westbound on-ramp at Bass Lake Road will be closed from 4 to 8 a.m.

These closures are necessary to facilitate blasting operations on the north side of Highway 50 for the county’s Silva Valley Interchange Project. While the closures are in place, both directions of Highway 50 traffic will be detoured around the closures via El Dorado Hills Boulevard, Serrano Parkway and Bass Lake Road.

Motorists are encouraged to take other alternate routes around the area that also bypass the closures.

Portable, changeable message signs will be placed around the work zone to keep motorists updated on any changes to the timing of the closures.

Questions regarding these temporary closures may be directed to Aradhana Kochar, the county’s resident engineer for this project, via e-mail at silvavalley@edcgov.us.
