The $40 million Western Placerville Interchanges Project is now in Phase 1A construction.
That phase is the westbound onramp from Ray Lawyer Drive and an auxilliary offramp lane for Placerville Drive.
The next phase is 1B that will construct bike lanes and a sidewalk on Fair Lane.
Phase 2 will make improvements to Ray Lawyer Drive and Forni Road south of Highway 50 near the jail and proposed new courts facility. Future phases will construct the Placerville Drive overcrossing and associated local road improvements, according to a statement from City Hall.
The Placerville City Council took action to proceed with next stage of design which will review signalized versus roundabout at the intersection Fair Lane Drive and Placerville Drive. In addition, final design will be prepared for a major portion of Phase 2.
Beginning Feb. 26, 2013, city council meetings will start one hour earlier, at 6 p.m. The council approved this action at its meeting on Jan. 22.
