Valencia road closures begin today

Beginning today and continuing for one week, the section of Magic Mountain Parkway between Interstate 5 and The Old Road in Valencia is scheduled to be closed for construction. Northbound and southbound freeway off-ramps are scheduled to remain open for access to eastbound Magic Mountain Parkway. Northbound and southbound on-ramps will be accessible from westbound Magic Mountain Parkway.

City receives state grant

The city of Santa Clarita received a $141,723 grant from the state of California's "Bicycle Transportation Account Grant," allowing the city to improve its non-motorized modes of travel.

The grant money will go toward restriping and installing bicycle lanes and routes on streets in the Industrial Center. Improvements include a class II bike lane on Avenue Stanford from Newhall Ranch Road to Rye Canyon Road, a class II bike lane on Avenue Scott from Avenue Rockefeller to Rye Canyon Road and a class III bike route on Avenue Stanford from Rye Canyon Road to Avenue Scott.

A class II bike lane is a segment on a roadway that has been stripped off as a bike lane while a class III bike route is a part of a roadway that has a wider lane to accommodate bike riders, according to Mark Hunter, traffic division administrative analyst.

The installations are expected in late 2009.

Three projects in Los Angeles County received grants and 19 "Bicycle Transportation Account Grants" were awarded statewide.

This is the first year the city was eligible to receive the grant.
