El Dorado prepares for gridlock on casino's opening day
Wednesday, December 10, 2008 at 11:12:27 AM
El Dorado County public safety and transportation officials are bracing for some of the heaviest traffic in the county's history as motorists head for up Highway 50 next week for the opening of a new Indian casino.
The Red Hawk Casino is scheduled to open at 7 p.m. Dec. 17 north of Highway 50 in Shingle Springs. But Capt. Bill Donovan, commander of the California Highway Patrol's Placerville office, said officers will begin directing traffic at 9 a.m. at the main intersection leading to the casino.
The primary goal, he said, is to keep traffic moving on Highway 50. If traffic begins to backup, he said, the off-ramps leading to the casino will be closed temporarily and freeway traffic will be waved through.
