The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) is advising motorists to expect daytime delays on Highway 193 in El Dorado County for paving work.
The paving project coincides with El Dorado County’s closure of Mosquito Bridge for routine summer maintenance. Residents affected by the bridge closure who are traveling to Placerville or U.S. Highway 50 are being detoured to Rock Creek Road and Highway 193.
Motorists can expect one-way traffic control on Highway 193 from Chili Bar to the junction of Highway 49 in Placerville from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday. Delays can be up to 15 minutes.
Paving is expected to be completed by the end of next week and restriping of the highway is scheduled to be finished by Aug. 2. Sierra Nevada Construction is the lead contractor for the highway paving job. The bridge is scheduled to be closed from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday until July 25.
Caltrans apologizes for the inconvenience and reminds motorists to “Slow for the Cone Zone.”
