Santa Clarita officials are “in the process of replacing speed limit signs to reflect recent changes in limits,” according to a Facebook post from the city Thursday.
In February, city officials also approved adjustments to the speed limits to 16 road segments, including portions of Newhall Ranch Road, Copper Hill Drive, Ruether Avenue and Via Princessa. The only street to change by 10 mph, from the posted 35 mph to 45 mph, is Lost Canyon Road from Via Princessa to Medley Ridge Drive, according to city officials.
The city advised residents of the following streets that will be seeing a lower speed limit:
* Copper Hill Drive, between Copperstone Drive and McBean Parkway, which is now 50 mph.
* Creekside Road, between McBean Parkway and Auto Center Drive, is now 30 mph.
* Hercules Street, between Kelly Johnson Parkway. and Constellation Road, is now 40 mph.
* Newhall Ranch Road, between Bouquet Canyon Road and Golden Valley Road, is now 50.
* Ruether Ave. between Soledad Canyon Rd. and Santa Clara Street, is now 30.
At the time of approval, officials noted the new speed limits would take effect once the signs are posted.
The city also established speed limits for two roadways segments that were once part of unincorporated Los Angeles County: Canyon Park Boulevard, from Jakes Way to Lost Canyon Road, will have a 45 mph limit, and Fahren Court, between Jakes Way and Sandy Drive, will have signs reading 25 mph.
Changes are recommended via a state-required engineering and traffic survey study, according to Mark Hunter, city transportation planning analyst, in a previous interview with The Signal.
