From page A3 | April 03, 2013 |

Roadwork continues in El Dorado County to maintain or improve the major highways, according to a roadwork update from Caltrans.

One short-term project includes maintenance work on State Route 49 (El Dorado and Placer Counties) from State Route 193 in Cool to the Bear River Bridge. Motorists can expect one-way traffic in different locations from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Long-term projects include a $31 million project adding bus/carpool lanes on Highway 50 from the Sacramento County line to Bass Lake Road. The westbound carpool lane from Cameron Park Drive to Bass Lake Road will remain closed in one section of the lane due to a drainage problem. It is expected to be repaved in May.

Motorists on Highway 50 from Ponderosa Road to the Sacramento County line can expect lane restrictions and ramp closures in various locations from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. Sunday through Friday, and through 9 a.m. Saturday as a k-rail is installed and electrical and pavement work is done. The work is expected to be completed by April 6.

Those traveling eastbound on Highway 50 from Bass Lake Road to Ponderosa Road can expect the number three lane to be closed from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. Sunday through Friday, and through 9 a.m. Saturday due to the installation of a k-rail. That work is also expected to be completed by April 6.

Work continues on a $43 million project on Highway 50 in South Lake Tahoe to widen shoulders, construct new sidewalks, add bike lanes and install new roadside drainage systems from Trout Creek Bridge to Ski Run Boulevard. The project is currently in winter suspension with expected completion by summer 2013.
