Portion of Highway 193 to close overnight

The state Department of Transportation reports that there will be a full closure of Highway 193 outside of Placerville in El Dorado County from 8 p.m. Thursday until 6 a.m. Friday. The portion of the closed highway is between Chili Bar and the junction with Highway 49 in Placerville. The closure is to accommodate heavy equipment pouring concrete as construction continues on a 300-foot retaining wall to stabilize the slope that gave away under the highway this winter, taking part of the northbound lane with it, according to Caltrans. During the full closure, the detour at the intersection of highways 49 and 193 in Placerville will be Highway 49 north to Marshall Road to Garden Valley Road to Highway 193 south. The detour for the closure at Chili Bar on Highway 193 will be Highway 193 north to Garden Valley Road to Marshall Road to Highway 49 south. Work on the $2.9 million emergency contract is expected to last through the end of August. After completion of the retaining wall, work will begin in July to rebuild the damaged section of highway, Caltrans reports.
