Western Placerville Interchanges Project Phase II
The Western Placerville Interchanges Project Phase II was completed in 2020 and was the result of coordinated efforts between Dewberry, the City of Placerville, California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), El Dorado County Transportation Commission, El Dorado Irrigation District, El Dorado County Jail, and other private energy, gas, and telecommunications providers. We provided construction management services for the project, which features a new off-ramp at Ray Lawyer Drive on U.S. 50, new auxiliary lane on east-bound U.S. 50, new park-and-ride facility, 400 feet of Type 5 retaining wall, street lighting along Forni Road and a signalized intersection at Ray Lawyer Drive and east-bound off-ramp intersection, and roughly 2,000 feet of new roadway for the realignment of Forni Road, including curb, gutter, sidewalk, storm drain facility, and a Class I bike path. In 2021, the project received the Construction Management Association of America’s (CMAA) Project of the Year Award for transportation projects under $50 million.
