Why is this berm here?

EDITOR:

There is a berm at the intersection of El Dorado Hills Boulevard and Serrano Parkway on the way up into Serrano. This berm obstructs the view of vehicles entering Serrano Parkway from either side. I have now taken a different route to avoid that intersection.At night all you are seeing is this berm until the last minute when a car is coming and you have to decide whether they will yield or will both of you collide.

I guess it is a matter of time before something serious happens and then perhaps the El Dorado County Department of Transportation may decide to level the ground. Whose idea was this berm anyway?

  1. I drive that intersection everyday. The berm is not a problem. It is clearly marked as a yield to merging traffic for eastbound traffic on Serrano Parkway. It is not hard to see traffic. I would say the speed of traffic on that corner is a problem and I have seen many cars sliding around that corner way too fast. If it rains there is almost always a car sliding over the median or over correcting and ending up on the turf on the shoulder. Speeding is a major issue all over El Dorado Hills. Slow down people!
