What is Trip to Green?

For three weekends this fall, traffic signals on both eastbound and westbound US 50  in the City of Placerville will be set to stay green so that traffic may flow freely. To ensure safe travel, northbound and southbound movements across US 50 at Canal Street, Spring Street (SR/Highway49), and Bedford Avenue will be closed to public traffic, allowing emergency vehicle access only. Right-in and right-out access will remain available at Spring Street, Center Street, and Bedford Avenue. Detours will be available and information is provided below for local traffic wishing to travel outside of US 50.

Dates of Closures

Traffic signal closures will be taking place three weekends during the fall of 2022:

  • August 6 & 7: from 8am - 8pm each day 
  • September 3, 4 & 5: from 8am - to 8pm each day
  • October 1 & 2: from 8am - 8pm each day
