A section of State Highway 193 in El Dorado County will be under signalized one-way traffic control for the next several weeks during emergency repair work.

A culvert under the highway near Rock Creek Road failed on Jan. 30 and the southbound lane of the highway was damaged. The location is about four miles north of Placerville, two miles south of Kelsey, in the American River canyon.

Motorists should expect delays of up to five minutes at the signals to get through construction zone.

Design engineers currently are working on plans for a new retaining wall to protect the slope. Doug Veerkamp Engineering of Cameron Park is the contractor doing the repairs.

Weather or other unexpected delays could postpone the work. For the latest highway traffic news, follow Caltrans District 3 on Twitter or like us on Facebook.
