The Transportation Division of El Dorado County’s Community Development Agency has implemented full one-directional closures of Highway 50. The closures will facilitate the needed falsework operations for the Silva Valley overcrossing. This work is scheduled to take two weeks to complete.
This week, all westbound lanes will close at 11 p.m. from Bass Lake Road to El Dorado Hills Boulevard. The westbound on-ramp at Bass Lake Road will close at 10 p.m.; both Highway 50 and the on-ramp will re-open at 5 a.m. Starting Sept. 12, the closures will be on all eastbound lanes between El Dorado Hills Boulevard and Bass Lake Road. The closure times remain the same, 10 p.m. at the eastbound Latrobe Road on-ramp and 11 p.m. for the Highway 50 thoroughfare. Both re-open at 5 a.m.
While the one-directional closures are in place, traffic will be detoured via El Dorado Hills Boulevard, Serrano Parkway and Bass Lake Road. 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.
