Plans to construct a $50 million highway overpass separating Commerce Center Drive and Highway 126 in Castaic moved forward this week, officials said Wednesday.

The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors approved environmental documents at a meeting Tuesday that will allow the county to build the overpass to ease traffic congestion at the intersection, said Gary Boze, a spokesman for the Los Angeles County Department of Public Works.     

Currently, a traffic signal is used at the intersection, which has two traffic lanes going east and west.

While the design of the overpass hasn’t been finalized, it will include four onramps and offramps and separate Highway 126 from Commerce Center Drive, Boze said.

The entire project, which also includes expanding Henry Mayo Drive, will cost $50 million to complete, according to county documents. More than $9 million will come from a Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority Grant.

A construction contract to build the overpass will be awarded in August, and the entire project is expected to take two years to complete.
