Placerville, CA - The Transportation Division of El Dorado County’s Community Development
Agency will be performing road work on Cold Springs Road between Skyview Lane and
approximately 500’ North of Mount Shasta Lane. The work is anticipated to begin on July 18, 2016
and continue through August 5, 2016. This work will require two 5-day, 24-hour full road closures
and detours. The first full road closure from Skyview Lane to American Way is scheduled to begin
on July 18, 2016 and continue through July 22, 2016. The second full road closure from American
Way to approximately 500’ North of Mount Shasta Lane is scheduled from August 1, 2016 through
August 5, 2016.
During these 5-day full road closures, detours will be in place around Cold Springs Road to Gold
Hill Road and Coloma Road / Highway 49. Traffic through the full closures will be limited to
emergency vehicles, bicycles and pedestrians. Access to driveways within the full closure work
zones will be made available for those local residents, visitors and deliveries. One-way reversing
traffic control from mid-July and into mid-August will continue as needed at various locations on
Cold Springs Road between Skyview Lane and approximately 500’ North of Mount Shasta Lane.
Motorists should expect delays from the mid-July through mid-August.
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. Safety improvements associated with the project include realignment of two existing
curves, roadway excavation, pavement, guardrail, fencing, drainage ditches, drainage system
improvements, relocating roadway signs, and roadway striping.
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 these roadway facilities.
