CITY OF SANTA CLARITA RECEIVES PUBLIC WORKS AWARD
Santa Clarita, Calif. -The City of Santa Clarita has been recognized by the High Desert Branch of the American Public Works Association (APWA) with an award for “Best Improvement for Public Safety” for the Lost Canyon Road Bridge widening project. The Branch represents public works jurisdictions located in Santa Clarita, Victorville, Lancaster and Palmdale. The award was presented at the High Desert Branch of the American Public Works Association’s year-end banquet.
The Lost Canyon Road Bridge widening project was completed in May of this year. After six months of construction, the Lost Canyon Road Bridge located next to the Santa Clara River in Canyon Country, was successfully widened by 16 feet on the north side.
In addition, the project added 4-foot shoulders along both sides of the existing travel lanes to provide extra space on the roadway. A new raised 10-foot wide concrete walkway on the north side of the bridge was also added to allow residents to safely cross the bridge. The path is part of future trail improvements connecting from Vista Canyon Development to Sand Canyon Road.
The American Public Works Association is a non-profit, professional association of public works agencies, private companies, and individuals working to promote professional excellence and public awareness of public works through education, advocacy and the exchange of knowledge.
