July 17 through Sept. 2, El Dorado County’s Department of Transportation, in conjunction with GP Development and GradeTek, Inc., will implement nightly lane closures on Saratoga Way between Arrowhead Drive and Finder’s Way starting at 7 p.m. each evening and ending each morning by 6 a.m.
Night work is scheduled to begin the evening of Monday, July 17, and occur nightly for approximately six weeks, tentatively ending the morning of Saturday, Sept. 2. Any changes to the schedule will be reflected by on-site signage.
Construction work will occur on Saratoga Way west of El Dorado Hills Boulevard, with one lane remaining open at all times while work is under way. Reversing traffic control will be conducted with flagging stations and appropriate signage. Access to Arrowhead Drive and Finder’s Way will remain open during construction. Vehicles will be directed to use a single lane while traveling through the construction zone, with all lanes re-opening each morning by 6 a.m.
Saratoga Way night work will allow for the installation of water, sewer and stormwater infrastructure to support the new medical office building currently under construction while maintaining a safe work zone for the construction crews and minimizing traffic impacts. Check the County website for any further traffic control.
Motorists are advised to slow down through the work zone and expect delays during construction. Motorists are also advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work zone in order to arrive at destinations on time or use alternate routes to avoid the construction area.
