State Department of Transportation to alter Highway 50 lights

By TIM WILLIS

The state Department of Transportation, in an effort to get Apple Hill season traffic on Highway 50 down the hill faster, will alter the traffic light cycle at the three intersections in Placerville Sunday, a city official announced Thursday afternoon.

The current traffic control system at the intersections respond automatically to traffic volume on the highway, on the cross streets and in left-turn lanes, according to a state Department of Transportation official.

The Placerville City Council agreed to forward a letter from Ray Balarin to Caltrans that made the following suggestion: “Wouldn’t be simpler to control lights themselves so that any number of cars, one or one hundred, making it (through) the first light in either direction would be assured of getting (through) all the lights instead of stopping 3 times?”

Fruit and Other Shipments

The Earl Fruit Company has shipped to date 36 full carloads of fruit. Shipments of pears and plumbs are about over and the fruit men are now in the midst of their harvest of Solways and other late peaches.

The Eureka Slate Company shipped a carload of roofing slate to Seattle, Saturday last. Two carloads of slate are now being loaded for that state.

Grape shipments will commence in about two weeks. There is a good crop in this county and they will bring a good price.

S. G. Beach & Co., shipped Monday a carload of oil cases to W. P. Fuller & Co. of Sacramento.

The market for California products in the east is growing steadily larger. The average shipments are one hundred carloads a day and the total for the season will be not less that 8,000 carloads.

 

Improvement Notes

The Waddell residence on Bedford Avenue is being improved and remodeled by the railroad people.

J. & J. Blair now keep six teams hauling lumber every day and then cannot keep up with the demand. The firm is delivering lumber this week to the American River Electric Co., and the River Hill and Franklin mines.

The M. E. Church is undergoing a thorough renovating and cleaning, and a portion of the auditorium is being repainted.

The new parochial building at the Catholic church is nearing completion. It is one of the best buildings in town and reflects much credit on the architect, Frank Gerbode.
