City of Santa Clarita road crews are working the night shift resurfacing Soledad Canyon Road from Sierra Highway to Sand Canyon, and they expect to finish the job on Wednesday, Sept. 5.
Construction hours are from 8 p.m. to 4:30 a.m.
The work is part of the city’s annual Road Rehab project, to improve City roadways and extend their life.
Soledad Canyon Road is receiving a slurry seal treatment, which requires construction in multiple phases, extending work across several days. Pre-work and repairs have already been completed and paving is underway.
Due to the nature of a slurry seal treatment, there is a temporary anticipated loss of asphalt material which may appear as shedding of pavement. On average, 10 percent of pavement material is lost over the first 30 days. This fluctuates depending on traffic.
To address the loose asphalt, a periodic street sweeping on the affected roadways, sidewalks and driveways will be scheduled during the first 30 days after the treatment has been applied, to reduce loose gravel and debris.
The street sweeping occurs on the 3rd, 7th and 14th days after slurry seal is applied. Street sweeping cannot occur the same night of paving as the pavement requires some time to set to prevent damage to the new layer.
The city of Santa Clarita appreciates the community’s cooperation and support, and will work hard to minimize inconvenience.
