Document Description
The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) proposes to install non-vehicle animal crossing warning signs with solar flashing beacons in El Dorado County on U.S. Route (US) 50. The purpose of the project is to provide safe and efficient roadway operations by improving driver visibility of deer crossing signs. This project is necessary because a safety analysis report shows that deer-related accidents continue to occur with the current deer crossing signs. 4 (W11-3 Deer) warning signs with flashing beacons will be installed and one previously installed warning sign at Postmile (PM) 1.27 will be modified to replace the W16-4P Plaque (Next 7 Miles) and install flashing beacons. The deer sign at PM14.50 (Location 2) will be removed and replaced to PM 14.60. All 4 locations will receive flashing beacons. All four flashing beacons will be solar power. Location 1: Postmile (PM) 1.27 (Electrical pole) Location 2: Postmile (PM) 14.60 (Electrical pole) Location 3: Postmile (PM) R8.04 (Electrical pole) Location 4: Postmile (PM) R8.60 (Electrical pole)
