Silverdale Way Road Improvement Project update

SILVERDALE — Through Jan. 24, the contractor on the Silverdale Way Road Improvement Project will focus on completing the joint utility trench and stormwater crossings on Silverdale Way south of Byron Street. The joint utility trench work will suspend next week to allow crews to work on the wall construction, located on the west side of Silverdale Way, from Byron Street continuing south.

Expect traffic delays longer than normal as the contractor will be moving materials and equipment in a narrow portion of Silverdale Way which slows the process down.

There is no work scheduled for Jan. 20.

All businesses are open during construction but motorists can expect delays. You can help keep traffic moving by planning ahead and scouting an alternate route to your destination.

Traffic impacts:

• Alternating one-lane traffic will occur on Silverdale Way south of Byron Street to accommodate the joint utility trench and stormwater crossings. The signal at Byron Street will be deactivated and flaggers will direct motorist through the intersection.

• The southbound shoulder on Silverdale Way (from Lowell Street to Byron Street) will close for the wall construction.

• Outside northbound lane of Silverdale Way (from Byron to Anderson Hill Road) will close as crews prepare for curb and gutter installation. The inside northbound lane will remain open for traffic.
