Newhall Avenue upgrades to begin Oct. 12

Designed to improve traffic flow

The city of Santa Clarita will begin a Traffic Circulation and Safety Improvement Project on Newhall Avenue on Monday, Oct. 12.

Work on the project will last from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, Oct. 16 and will include the removal of existing delineators and the construction of a landscaped median on Newhall Avenue.

Slated for completion in December, the project will shift lanes on Newhall Avenue at Sierra Highway northerly to allow more room for eastbound buses to stop without impeding traffic flow.

The project will also add pedestrian ramps and modify the intersection's traffic signal to patch into the city's Traffic Operations Center, Santa Clarita's traffic hub.

"Because of its close proximity to the Highway 14 freeway and Sierra Highway, this particular area of Newhall Avenue is heavily traveled by pedestrians, automobiles and buses," Mayor Frank Ferry said. "The Traffic Circulation and Safety Improvement Project will help to streamline traffic flow and increase safety for all who travel through the intersection."

The project is one of five in the city related to the Highway Infrastructure Program, funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).
