(Placerville, CA) – The Transportation Division of El Dorado County’s Community Development
Agency will be performing road work on Salmon Falls Road in between Salmons Fall Court and Miners
Valley Road in Pilot Hill. The work is anticipated to begin on May 31, 2016 and continue through
September 2016. The construction work will require lane closures with one-way reversing traffic
control for which motorists should expect delays.
The closures are necessary to ensure motorist and worker safety while the County’s contractor performs
work on the roadway. The improvements involve realignment of an existing curve and include roadway
excavation, pavement, curb, guardrail, fencing, roadway signs, and striping.
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. Traffic control is expected to be in effect from approximately 7:00
am through 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday. Then, tentatively beginning on June 9th, temporary traffic
signals will be installed at either ends of the project to provide reversing one-way traffic control through
the work area. The temporary signals will operate 24 hours per day/7 days a week for approximately
two (2) months. 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 closures.
The County sincerely appreciates the cooperation and patience of motorists that use these roadway
