Plans for relieving traffic congestion in the Diamond Springs area have been on the drawing board for more than 15 years. The Diamond Springs Parkway Project is expected to provide some of that relief by widening and realigning a portion of Diamond Road which is actually Highway 49 immediately north of the intersection with Pleasant Valley Road to a point just north of Lime Kiln Road. The balance of the project would construct a connecting road, the Parkway, from Highway 49 to Missouri Flat Road.

In addition to traffic relief, impetus for the Parkway project has been the proposed Diamond-Dorado retail center development by Leonard Grado and Palos Verdes Properties.

    This article is incomplete. It's been on the drawing board for more than 15 years. It explains what it is intended to do. So what? What is new????? And yes, it helps former Supervisor Jack Sweeney's friend, Grado. But traffic congestion???? I don't see an issue with that, until they build out the proposed housing tracts in El Dorado and Diamond Springs. Folks, get ready for congestion, then. Build it, and they will come.
