Placer County – Caltrans is alerting State Route 267 (SR-267) motorists to expect operational changes to the traffic signal at the intersection of Schaffer Mill Road and Truckee Airport Road in Placer County.  

Today, Caltrans maintenance crews replaced traffic signal lights at the intersection and recalibrated signal timing to permit dedicated left turns for motorists traveling from Schaffer Mill or Truckee Airport Roads onto SR-267. Previously, motorists attempting to make left turns from these secondary roads had to yield to through traffic, creating long queues and extended travel delays.

These improvements were implemented based on feedback from local residents and officials.

Caltrans District 3 is responsible for maintaining and operating 4,385 lane miles in 11 Sacramento Valley and Northern Sierra counties.
