Newhall: Public meeting scheduled for roundabout

The proposed Newhall roundabout will be the topic of discussion Thursday night as Santa Clarita officials host a meeting for those interested in learning more about the plan.

The roundabout, which is viewed as the gateway to Newhall, is planned at the intersection of Main Street meets Newhall Avenue near the entrance to William S. Hart Park.

As proposed, the roundabout would replace the stoplights at the intersection of Fifth Street, Main Street and Newhall Avenue.

City officials have previously told The Signal that eliminating the signals in favor of a roundabout would increase the flow of traffic, lower vehicle emissions and reduce accidents in the area.

The proposed roundabout would feature a large center island that would force vehicles to slow down and turn slightly to the right to enter.

The meeting will be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday at Hart Hall, 24151 Newhall Ave. inside Hart Park.
