(Placerville, CA) – The Transportation Division of El Dorado County’s Community Development
Agency will implement day time lane closures in both directions of U.S. 50 between El Dorado Hills
Boulevard and Bass Lake Road. Closures are as follows:
Westbound Daytime Lane Closure on Tuesday, May 17th
Westbound Number 3 Lane (outside lane) from Bass Lake Road to the Silva Valley Parkway will be
closed from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. One lane, in addition to the HOV Lane, will be open for travel.
Eastbound Daytime Lane Closure on Wednesday, May 18th
Eastbound Number 4 Lane (outside lane) from the Silva Valley Overcrossing to Bass Lake Road will
be closed from 6:00 am to 2:00 pm. Two lanes, in addition to the HOV Lane, will be open for travel.
These closures are necessary to facilitate paving operations for the new westbound off-ramp to U.S. 50
and for the new eastbound on-ramp to U.S. 50 for the County’s Silva Valley Interchange Project. While
the lane closures are in place, both directions of U.S. Highway 50 traffic will be open. Motorists are
encouraged to take other alternate routes around the area which 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 the Aradhana Kochar, the County’s
resident engineer for this project, via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
