Enforcement of the new restrictions will begin immediately. New roadside signs and striping indicating the restrictions and the loading and unloading zone are expected to be in place by June 1. Temporary signs will remain in place until all permanent signs have been installed. The new restrictions are applicable between May 2 and Oct. 31 annually. No roadside parking is allowed during the winter months (between Nov. 1 and May 1) to allow for snow removal.
“With winter parking restrictions ending May 1, we want to make sure we’re getting the word out right away about the new restrictions and fines so there are no surprises when enforcement begins,” said Peter Kraatz, Placer County assistant director of public works and facilities.
The county continues to encourage visitors to use public transit and carpooling to access Speedboat Beach and walk or bike whenever possible, with parking still expected to be limited during the summer months.
