Construction began on November 27, 2013. Project completion is anticipated in early 2016. The U.S. Highway 50 / Silva Valley Parkway Interchange Project - Phase 1 is located in El Dorado Hills and will construct a new overcrossing over U.S. Highway 50, new on and off ramps with signalized intersections, and new bicycle and pedestrian facilities. The purpose of the project is to provide another access point to U.S. 50 for motorists in El Dorado Hills. The project will decrease congestion on several area roadways and improve travel time by providing more direct access to U.S. Highway 50 for many area residents and businesses that would otherwise be required to access U.S. Highway 50 from El Dorado Hills Boulevard, Latrobe Road, or Bass Lake Road.
