Travel model workshop scheduled

PLACERVILLE — The El Dorado County Department of Transportation invites the public to attend a workshop on the Travel Demand Model Update.

“If you have ever wondered how the county plans improvements to our transportation infrastructure, this workshop would be a good place to start,” said Claudia Wade, senior civil engineer.

The Travel Demand Model is an essential tool which helps determine the county’s future transportation needs. Not just for transportation engineers, the workshop will answer general questions about development, purpose and use of the new model, scheduled for completion in the fall of 2012. The workshop will be presented by county staff, as well as representatives from Kimley-Horn & Associates Inc. — the county’s project consultant.

“Good planning begins with good planning tools,” said Wade. “We are excited about the travel model update, and hope the public takes advantage of the workshop to learn about how this tool will help build future transportation improvements.”

The workshop will be held at 7 p.m. on Thursday, June 28, in the Planning Commission hearing room located at 2850 Fairlane Court, Building C, in Placerville.

Additional information about the Travel Demand Model is available at edcgov.us/LandUseUpdate.
