The city of Santa Clarita and Caltrans engineers have partnered with Caltrans to provide traffic enhancements. These enhancements will improve evening commute times at the busy intersection of Sierra Highway and Golden Valley Road.

Striping has been revised at the intersection to provide dual left turn lanes for northbound traffic. These improvements will allow twice as many vehicles to make a left turn on each cycle of the traffic signal. The update will also reduce delays and vehicle backup and improve safety at the intersection.

This project is one of many enhancements being completed in this area. In addition to these traffic improvements, Caltrans is working on repaving Sierra Highway between the Interstate 5 – State Route 14 interchange and Friendly Valley Parkway. City staff is also continuing work on the Sierra Highway Pedestrian Bridge and Street Improvements Project.

For more information, please visit santa-clarita.com/CIP.

For more information on these traffic improvements, please contact City Traffic Engineer Gus Pivetti at gpivetti@santa-clarita.com, or at (661) 286-4047.

  1. Thx you Lord Jesus. Now we just need Two Right lanes to turn from Golden Valley to Southbound Sierra in the morning. It’s horrible.

  2. As long as the city keeps letting builders build it’s only going to be a short term fix.

  3. Jerry Ford Jerry Ford says:

    Who cares! They let so many Illegals live here and the traffic is already un bearable. Anything that gets done is gonna be a waste of time and $$$. Get the Illegals out and we will solve many problems……Traffic, water, electricity. They leave less of the previously mentioned will be used.

  4. Wilma Rennie Wilma Rennie says:

    Wow, the Sierra I lived on caught the school bus on only had two not very wide lanes.

  5. Now please do the same turning west on to Sierra hwy from golden valley

  6. Dale Andrews Dale Andrews says:

    Yes finally should have done that 4 years ago. oh I forgot Caltrans

  7. That a big improvement for the time being. Going straight will likely be very challenging now!! Hope they work on the medians too or take them out and add a lane.

  8. Nice a big job you know what that means . Our tax dollars going to use on paying about 8 people to work and about another 15 just standing around how amazing

  9. Paving the way for the new housing community called Skyline.

  10. Juan Godina Juan Godina says:

    A motorcycle cop on that corner would of been just fine.

    • Juan Godina, how is a motorcycle cop going to alleviate a half mile of cars waiting to turn?

    • Juan Godina Juan Godina says:

      Jason DeShazer maybe not the rush hour part but all the crazy drivers speeding up the hill criss crossing from lane to lane cutting people off it will help. I drive down that road with my son in the car during traffic hour and it’s pretty dangerous

    • It isn’t even rush hour, traffic up there at that intersection is bad almost any time of day. Yes people speed and change lanes, it would be nice if some regular enforcement happened but it’s only once a month or so even you see a patrol car.

  11. Donald Hicks Donald Hicks says:

    Now if they’d only fix the timing of the traffic lights…

  12. William Reel William Reel says:

    Improve the roads for all the speeding, reckless drivers that rule the roads in SCV👍🏼🤤

  13. Nadiya Littlewarrior says:

    Thank you!

  14. So needed!!! That left hand turn lane gets so back up at times. There was no need for a right hand turn lane.

  15. Two Right turn lanes from Golden Valley to Sierra Hwy will help tremendously in the morning hours. Right lane turning right and second lane turning right or continuing straight to Golden Valley.
