On Friday, January 18 at 10:00 a.m., the City of Santa Clarita will be hosting a public ribbon cutting event to celebrate the completion of the Newhall Ranch Road Bridge Widening Project. The event will be held at the northwest corner of the Newhall Ranch Road Bridge.
Along with the Santa Clarita City Council, Supervisor Kathryn Barger, Fifth District, County of Los Angeles, and representatives from both the Los Angeles County Department of Public Works and Caltrans will be in attendance.
The multi-million dollar project expanded the bridge to provide an additional traffic lane in each direction – increasing the number of lanes in each direction to four. In addition to improving trail connections with a new undercrossing trail in the west bank, the project also added a raised median and a new protected sidewalk and bike path on the south side of the bridge. The Newhall Ranch Road Bridge Widening Project is a federally funded project and is part of the Building and Creating Community theme in the Santa Clarita 2020 plan.
Attendees may park at the Valencia Village shopping plaza located adjacent to the event site. Signs will be posted to direct attendees to the event site along the street.
