(Placerville, CA) – At 4:30 a.m. on June 1, 2016, El Dorado County opened the U.S. 50/Silva Valley Parkway Interchange to motorists.

The project has been identified in the County’s General Plan since the 1990s. The total projected cost for Phase 1 is approximately $56 million. While final costs for the project are being calculated, it is anticipated that the project will be approximately $4 million under its 2010 Phase 1 budget. The project was primarily funded by a combination of traffic impact mitigation fees and developer fees.

This successful project was made possible with the assistance of many partners. The County Community Development Agency, Transportation Division was responsible for overall project management, while project design was prepared by Mark Thomas and Associates and construction was performed by Myers and Sons Construction. Other partners who made delivery of this project possible include residents and developers in El Dorado Hills who contributed to the funding of the interchange through payment of traffic impact mitigation fees and developer fees. In addition, the County received cooperation from PG&E, Caltrans, and the El Dorado County Irrigation District on the project.

Most importantly, the County wishes to thank the motorists for their patience during the construction process.
