El Dorado County transportation officials will close part of Highway 50 in both directions for a few hours Sunday morning, along with two on-ramps.

The closure will be between El Dorado Hills Boulevard and Bass Lake Road. Eastbound lanes from Latrobe Road toward Bass Lake Road will be closed from 6 to 8 a.m., in addition to westward lanes between the same roads. On-ramps for the two roads will be shut down from 4 to 8 a.m.

There are also plans to close White Rock Road, from Valley View Parkway to Entrada Circle.

The closures are designed to allow blasting operations for El Dorado County’s Silva Valley Interchange Project Sunday morning.

Message signs will be posted near the construction sites to update drivers on the closure’s status.
