RIBBON CUTTING FOR THE NEWHALL RANCH ROAD BRIDGE WIDENING PROJECT POSTPONED DUE TO WEATHER-RELATED DELAYS

The Newhall Ranch Road Bridge Widening Project that was scheduled to take place on Friday, January 18, 2019, at 10:00 a.m. has been postponed due to work delay as a result of the recent rain storm impacting the region. However, all lanes of traffic are now open – offering the widened capacity of four lanes in each direction. Finishing details for the bridge have been delayed due to the inclement weather – such as road grinding and striping of the lanes. Weather permitting, these items will be completed by the end of next week.

             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.

A rescheduled date is forthcoming and will be announced in a press release. For additional details about the project, please contact Project Manager Jackie Lillio at (661) 286-4131.
