Silverdale Way NW Pre-Design Study

PRE-DESIGN REPORT   [2.6 MB]  February 2010
APPENDICES A,B,C,D,E,F            [5.5 MB]

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 Principal Arterial.

Project Impetus
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.

Project Scope
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.
