Angels Camp Landmark Demolished

Sponsored by:

Angels Camp, CA– Demolition work is just about complete on the well-known Angels Camp landmark Blondies Frosty.

The business, which opened in 1952 as a Fosters Freeze, was torn down this week to make way for the future Angels Camp Bypass. The new route will start at the Highway 4/49 intersection and connect with Highway 4 near the Rolleri Bypass.

This step takes place as controversy is growing on where the money will come from to pay for an increase in cost of the bypass.

Recently Caltrans told planners the project would cost another $13 million, bringing the total cost to $60 million.

Calaveras County Supervisor Merita Callaway says Amador County could hold up the project if it doesn´t sign off on funds through a tri-county agreement.

The project was set to go out to bid in February and work to begin in June.
