EL DORADO COUNTY TO BEGIN 16 MONTHS OF ROAD WORK
IN DIAMOND SPRINGS AREA
(PLACERVILLE, CA) -- El Dorado County's Department of Transportation will be performing road work on State Route 49 in the Diamond Springs area beginning May 28th and continuing until September 2020. The project is located along State Route 49 from Pleasant Valley Road to Bradley Drive. Work will also be completed on Black Rice Road and Lime Kiln Road. The work will require occasional lane closures during which motorists should expect delays.
The lane closures are necessary to ensure motorist and worker safety while the County's contractor realigns and widens State Route 49 and constructs improvements at the Pleasant Valley Road intersection. Portable changeable message signs will be posted approximately one week in advance of the construction and will remain throughout the duration of the project. Additionally, Lime Kiln Road will be closed for approximately 2 months during construction, anticipated to begin around August 2019. The County will provide advance notification prior to this closure and a detour route will be available.
Motorists are advised to slow down through the work zone and expect delays during reversing traffic control. Motorists are also advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work zone in order to arrive at their destinations on time.
The County sincerely appreciates the cooperation and patience of motorists that use this roadway and we apologize for any inconvenience as a result of these closures.
For questions regarding this construction, please contact the County's Transportation main line at (530) 621-5900 (select Option 3 for Engineering).
