 PG&E Outages Webinar

Thank you to everyone who called in to make a comment at the CPUC meeting last week about PG&E’s lack of action regarding the frequent, unplanned outages caused by their fast trip switches.

As a result of your feedback, PG&E is hosting a virtual community meeting webinar to answer your questions about what they are doing to address your concerns on Wednesday, September 29, 2021 at 5:30pm. The link for that webinar and instructions for how to participate will be posted here soon:

Mt Murphy Closure

 Mt. Murphy Road Bridge CLOSED September 25, 2021 until Repaired.

El Dorado County’s Department of Transportation has closed Mt. Murphy Road Bridge over the South Fork American River in Coloma due to damage to the bridge. Motorists are advised to use Mt. Murphy Road to Marshall Road in Garden Valley in order to exit the northeast side of the river. Vehicles over 30 feet are not advised on Mt. Murphy Road. Motorists should also allow extra time when traveling through the detour in order to arrive at their destinations on time. Due to the narrow one lane road condition of Bayne Road, only local traffic is advised.

The County sincerely appreciates the cooperation and patience of motorists that use this bridge and we apologize for any inconvenience as a result of this closure.

For questions regarding this closure, please contact the County’s Transportation main line at (530) 621-5900 or (530) 642-4909.

Future press releases with updates on the bridge will be posted here:

As part of the redistricting process currently underway in El Dorado County, alternative maps under consideration for Board of Supervisors districts are now available for public viewing.

The public mapping application allows the public to provide comments on specific areas of the County and the map alternatives overall, and provides instructions for use. The public may also access and download data and the census files to create their own maps for consideration.

A review of map alternatives provided by the Redistricting Team as well as any submitted by the public will be provided at the next Redistricting public meeting, which is scheduled for October 14, 2021.
