Silverdale Way NW Pre-Design Study
REPORT [2.6 MB] February 2010
Project Location and Setting
The project study limits (road segment) extend from the SR3 northbound
ramp onto Newberry Hill Road, east to Chico Way and north on Silverdale
Way to Anderson Hill Road. The Federal Functional Class is (14) an Urban
The Silverdale Circulation Study (1998) identified this road segment as
a high priority for capacity improvements. The corridor is also
identified as a high priority project under the County's Bicycle
Facilities Plan and a gateway into Silverdale. Completion of
improvements to this corridor would relieve congestion, improve safety
and present a gateway for vehicular traffic and non-motorized users.
This study consists of preparation of a design report identifying and
analyzing various alternatives for future improvements to Silverdale
Way. The study looks at roadway capacity, intersection
improvements, safety issues, non-motorized amenities, aesthetics,
potential environmental issues and right-of-way impacts. The purpose of
the study is to determine how the road can best be improved to address
the needs of the community and the traveling public, and to develop an
estimate of improvement costs and timelines.
A major element of the study is analyzing the intersection at Chico
Way and determining how it can be reconstructed to enhance capacity and
safety. The design study will consider options for signalizing the
intersection and for constructing a roundabout.
Improvements to the Chico Way intersection are fully funded in the
County's 6-Year Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) at an estimated
cost of $1,005,000. The schedule calls for final design starting in
early 2010 and construction beginning in 2012.
