Cameron traffic jam solutions hit logjam

By DAVID RICHIE

State and county transportation experts are in agreement about the traffic jams in Cameron Park where Highway 50 meets Coach Lane and Cameron Park Drive. They will only get worse state Department of Transportation official Sam Johnson noted in a recent letter to Scott Chadd, county transportation director.

“As you are aware, Caltrans has been pursuing a project to signalize three intersections along Cameron Park Drive, including the interchange with Highway 50. We have completed our studies to the point where we have conducted that project as proposed, is not worthwhile,” Johnson informed Chadd.

In a report to the board last January Chadd described the interchange of Cameron Park Drive and Coach Lane as functioning at level of service D, with the interchange at Cameron Park Drive and eastbound Highway 50 ramps slightly worse at a level of service between D and E. This describes conditions of unstable traffic flow with sometimes significant delays.

Veerkamp Girl Joins Brother In Hospital For Polio Treatment

Eva May Veerkamp, 13, daughter of Elwin Veerkamp of Placerville, was taken to Permanente Hospital in Vallejo last Wednesday night for treatment of infantile paralysis a few hours after her brother, Elwin Jr., had been admitted for the same ailment.

An eighth grade pupil at Placerville Grammar School, Eva May was rushed to the hospital in the Placerville Ambulance near midnight on Wednesday, shortly after the ambulance had returned from delivering her brother to the Vallejo institution. Elwin is a sophomore at El Dorado High.

Reports to the family late this week indicate that Elwin is showing some improvement from the dread polio which affected his neck. Eva May was stricken in one leg.

Both were hospitalized through the services of the county chapter of the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis.
