The long work of revamping the Interstate 5/Magic Mountain Parkway interchange is nearing an end.

Last week, the widened northbound freeway off-ramp reopened to traffic, after being closed for almost a year.

While the ramp was shut down, traffic had been diverted through Wayne Mills Place and Tourney Road to connect to Magic Mountain Parkway.

The two-lane northbound on-ramp is expected to be completely open to traffic within the month, according to city officials. Presently only one lane of the ramp is open.

The construction project started in July 2006 and was intended to alleviate traffic by widening the intersection, city spokeswoman Gail Ortiz told The Signal last month.

Southbound on- and off-ramps remain open.

The $37 million project, paid for the Metropolitan Transit Authority, Los Angeles County and Newhall Land and Farming, with oversight by the city of Santa Clarita, is expected to be complete by late summer.

The nearby realignment of The Old Road included moving the Chevron gas station further west toward the Six Flags Magic Mountain theme park.
