(Placerville, CA) – The Transportation Division of El Dorado County’s Community Development Agency has closed the Cosumnes Mine Road bridge as it crosses the North Fork of the Cosumnes River in El Dorado County. Water has washed away the soil from under the north bridge approach making it no longer safe to cross. The bridge will be closed until the water recedes enough to allow County staff to assess the full damage to the bridge and its approach.
The Transportation Division understands the inconvenience that motorists face while this closure is in place and sincerely appreciates your patience with this matter.
Questions regarding this temporary closure may be directed to Matthew Smeltzer, Deputy Director of Engineering, at (530) 621-5912.
