Construction for the city of Santa Clarita's "Safe Route to School" program is nearing completion at Canyon Springs Elementary School in Canyon Country.

The construction, conducted by R.C. Becker & Son, is set for completion on July 14 and will help to allow for safer pedestrian travel for students around the Canyon Country school.

The city of Santa Clarita kicked off its Safe Route to School improvements at Canyon Springs Elementary School after school let out for the summer on June 22.

Work includes sidewalk, curb and gutter removal and replacement, paving, crosswalk striping, sign installation and construction of bulb-outs -- devices that widen curbs and sidewalks to narrow streets and calm traffic -- at selected intersections.

"The city's Safe Route to School projects seek to increase the safety of students traveling around schools and and encourage them to bike and walk to class," Mayor Frank Ferry said. "The project at Canyon Springs Elementary School will help to slow traffic, decrease the distance kids travel across crosswalks, and increase overall pedestrian safety."

The work around Canyon Springs Elementary School is part of the city's overall Safe Route to School Infrastructure Project that also includes Emblem Elementary School and Meadows Elementary School.

Project improvements are already in place at Newhall, Cedar Creek and Santa Clarita Elementary School, with six more city elementary schools set to receive Safe Route to School improvements over the next two years.

Canyon Springs Elementary School is located at 19059 Vicci St., Canyon Country 91351.
