U.S. Highway 50 Camino Safety Project


DESCRIPTION

In the Camino area, east of Placerville, on U.S. Highway 50 from Still Meadows Road to 0.1 mile east of Upper Carson Road. The project proposes to install a concrete median barrier, widen outside shoulders, and install several acceleration/deceleration lanes to decrease potential vehicle conflicts. In addition, a new undercrossing will be constructed to allow access between the north and south sides of Highway 50.

PROJECT BENEFITS

The purpose of this project is to improve the safety on Highway 50 in the Camino Corridor by modifying the roadway This will be done by installing a concrete median barrier that will restrict left-turn movements at at-grade intersections within the project limits. Widening the outside shoulders to standard width and installing several acceleration/deceleration lanes will help to reduce collisions within the project limits. A secondary purpose is to maintain local and regional access to and from the north and south sides of Highway 50 while providing safe east-west access on and off the highway.
