The city of Santa Clarita will host a ribbon-cutting event to celebrate the completion of the Newhall Ranch Road Bridge Widening Project on Friday, Jan. 18, starting at 10 a.m.
The public is invited to the event, to be held at the northwest corner of the Newhall Ranch Road Bridge.
Attendees may park at the Valencia Village shopping plaza located adjacent to the event site. Signs will be posted to direct attendees to the event site along the street.
Along with the Santa Clarita City Council, Los Angeles County Fifth District Supervisor Kathryn Barger and representatives from both the county Department of Public Works and Caltrans will be in attendance.
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 bridge widening project is federally funded and part of the Building and Creating Community theme in the Santa Clarita 2020 plan.
