El Dorado County to Complete Construction of U.S. 50 Project

El Dorado County to Complete Construction of U.S. 50 Project

The El Dorado County Department of Transportation (DOT) expects construction on the $27.7 million median widening of U.S. 50 thorough El Dorado Hills to be completed in fall 2011. Completion of the 4-mile long project will add carpool lanes in each direction of U.S. 50 from the County line to Bass Lake Road, widen Latrobe Road and El Dorado Hills Boulevard under U.S. 50, replace all of the bridges that carry U.S 50 traffic over Latrobe Road and El Dorado Hills Boulevard, and widen the bridges that carry U.S. 50 traffic over Silva Valley Parkway and Bass Lake Road.

Bids for the project were opened on October 30, 2008.

Stage 1 of AMGEN race delayed because of snow

LAKE TAHOE – Organizers pushed back Stage 1 of the AMGEN Tour of California to 1:15 p.m. Sunday after overnight snow hit the Lake Tahoe area.

South Lake Tahoe police announced the change at 7:43 a.m., just hours before the race began.

Cyclists will ride from South Shore Casino to North Star at Tahoe via Highway 50, and then turn north along Highway 89, said Sgt. Shannon Laney.

“We will continue to monitor the weather conditions and state of the roads and make a final decision at noon PT, with the riders’ safety as our number one priority,” AEG Sports President Andrew Messick said in a statement.

Bicyclists were supposed to start at South Lake Tahoe at 10:30 a.m. and end at Northstar at Tahoe Resort in North Lake Tahoe between 3:15 p.m. and 3:30 p.m.

The new route will be 50 miles and the finish time is expected to be the same.

The Stage 1 circuit originally circled Lake Tahoe covering 118.7 miles.
