Rumble strips being installed on Silverdale Way, Chico Way
June 11, 2008 · Updated 2:04 PM
Installing new rumble strips on several local roads is a project bound to instill some grumbling among motorists.
For the first of a series of new rumble strips projects, the county is prohibiting parking along Silverdale Way Northwest (from Northwest Byron Street to Northwest Newberry Hill Road) and along Chico Way Northwest (from Northwest Newberry Hill Road to the southerly intersection with Northlake Way Northwest). The parking ban is between 6 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Wednesday, Oct. 10-12.
Apply-A-Line, Inc. has the $45,030 contract to install the milled rumble strips on county roads. These are new safety measures designed to increase awareness of lane edges and help prevent motorists from driving off the road, helping reduce accidents.
