Residents are invited to learn more about the City of Santa Clarita’s Newhall Roundabout Project and the anticipated construction schedule at an Open House hosted from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Thursday, March 14, 2013 at Hart Hall, located at 24151 Newhall Avenue.

The Newhall Roundabout Project serves to improve traffic circulation, provide greater pedestrian connectivity between Main Street and Hart Park, and create an iconic gateway into Old Town Newhall.

“The benefits of this modern roundabout will allow for smoother traffic flow around Old Town Newhall as well as create a focal point to the Southern entrance of Main Street with the addition of a historical public art piece,” said Mayor Bob Kellar. “Before beginning construction on the Newhall Roundabout Project, we want to gather feedback from the community about this project and educate the community about how this exciting new traffic circle will function.”

One of the priorities identified for revitalization in the Downtown Newhall Specific Plan, which was adopted by City Council in 2005, was to change the character of the area by reconfiguring traffic flow to make the area more pedestrian friendly. The Newhall Roundabout is proposed to be constructed at the intersection of Main Street, Newhall Avenue and 5th Street and will contain an iconic art piece at the center to symbolize Old Town Newhall’s heritage.

For the last 10 years the City of Santa Clarita has actively taken on projects to revitalize and reinvigorate Old Town Newhall. Recent accomplishments include road realignments, circulation improvements, streetscape enhancements along Main Street, and a diverse mix of Thursdays @ Newhall events that attract thousands of visitors annually. Additionally, Old Town Newhall has seen new retail businesses relocate to the growing arts and entertainment district, including: Luscious Soul, One Savvy Girl, Ma Maison, and J. Serrano.
