Pioneer Trail/ U.S. Highway 50 Intersection Safety Improvement Project

Project Summary

This project aims to improve the intersection of US 50 and Pioneer Trail in Meyers by replacing the existing signalized intersection with a roundabout. Multiple agencies including El Dorado County, Caltrans Headquarters, Caltrans Maintenance, Caltrans Traffic Operations, CHP, TRPA, FHWA, participated in analyzing the U.S. 50 Meyers Highway Corridor and this intersection for potential safety improvements in 2016. Nearly all of the project is in Caltrans right-of-way, and when Caltrans procedures are used to determine intersection improvements that will provide the greatest operational and safety benefits, it is likely that a roundabout will be constructed to replace the existing signalized intersection.
