Additional traffic is always a concern pertaining to any new development. The Village at Wiley Canyon is anticipated to greatly enhance Wiley Canyon to improve existing traffic conditions making the road safer and more accessible for pedestrians, bicycles, and automobiles alike.
- The project will include significant improvements/enhancements to Wiley Canyon Road and Calgrove Boulevard. These include the addition of three single lane roundabouts (project entrance/Wiley, Canerwell/Wiley, and Calgrove/Wiley), the addition of two traffic signals at I-5 and the north and southbound on and off ramps, and the contribution to a future signal at Wabuska Lane and Wiley Canyon Road
- Additional improvements to Wiley include the addition of sidewalk on the west and east side and a Class 1 Trail on the west side significantly enhancing safety for pedestrian and bicyclists and providing a connection from the project site to the City open space areas west of I-5
- The cost of the above improvements is estimated at approximately $4 million all of which will be borne by the project
- See the attached exhibit which identifies the above improvements as well as other required improvements including signal timing modifications to improve traffic flow
Existing Operational Conditions and Benefits of the Project Required Improvements
- Wiley Canyon/Calgrove operates at a Level of Service F during the PM peak hour – installation of a roundabout at the intersection by the project will improve it to a Level of Service A during both the AM and PM peak hours
- I-5 SB Ramps/Calgrove operates at a Level of Service F in both the AM and PM peak hour – installation of a signal by the project would improve the Level of Service to a C in the AM peak hour and a Level of Service D in the PM peak hour
- I-5 NB Ramp/Calgrove operates at a Level of Service C in the AM Peak Hour and an F in the PM peak hour – installation of a signal by the project would improve the Level of Service to a C in both the AM and PM peak hour
***These are initial findings. The traffic study is being peer reviewed by the City. Therefore, the above is subject to change.
