(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
