Squaw stoplight is functional

Prepare to stop.

The traffic signal in Squaw Valley is up and running as of Tuesday at 2 p.m., said Merle Henry, a construction engineer with Placer County.

Construction of the $275,000 traffic signal began in August and is now up just in time for the ski season.

“The signal was funded by the Squaw Valley traffic mitigation fund, which is fees developers and homeowners pay when they build,” said Rick Dondro, the Placer County Public Works manager.

The new traffic signal includes turn signals on Hwy. 89 and a cross walk on the south side of Squaw Valley Road to help pedestrians and bicyclists cross the highway, Dondro said.
