  1. Debbie Blaisdell the reason for your horrible drive in this morning

  2. Randy Rodi Randy Rodi says:

    I mean traffic is like this normally

  3. I don’t understand with all the construction on the 5 going on, why we can’t throw in a freeway widening project, as well. Obviously, the area is in need for it.

  4. There’s simply too many people in SCV…and really only one way in and out. What a nightmare this morning !

  5. Travis Levy says:

    Yet they want to build more . This and like many other reasons is why we shouldn’t expand . Our roads are horrible and our town was never meant to be this size .

  6. The crash happened at about 1045pm last night per CHP. That needs to be cleared before rush hour the next morning.

  7. But let’s build more houses, bring in another 25,000 cars

    • John Chan John Chan says:

      That project off the 126 got approved, get ready for 58k more people

    • Randy Rodi Randy Rodi says:

      Lets not forget about the homes behind golden valley target and up plum canyon also cutting through plum.wait there’s more by intersection of Soledad and sand canyon and all those house in the wash

    • Kim Audet Kim Audet says:

      Did I hear correctly because of all the new homes being built there would be a new road coming from the valley in to SCV? A canyon type road? I might be wrong. Maybe a rumor?

    • Chris Gately Chris Gately says:

      There are plans for skyline drive to connect Sierra to plumb canyon. There are plans to connect golden valley to railroad once a development starts on the superfund site.

      Lastly… I’ve heard that the Newhall Ranch project may be the driver to expand and modernize SR-23 that connects Fillmore to Moorpark.

  8. Ckay Walker Ckay Walker says:

    Days like this I am so thankful for motorcycles.

  9. Brian Malley Brian Malley says:

    Missed flight. Oh well. Perfect storm-construction, flipped truck and closed on ramp at Calgrove. Tried to take Old Road down to Calgrove from Magic Mountain. The 14 would have been the better call.

  10. Cindy Colette this is why I didn’t make it today 😞

  11. John Egan be glad you aren’t home

  12. And they want to build more home!!!

  13. Love Santa Clarita but the traffic is hectic everyday . And that we are getting more accidents being cause by dumb drivers it seems. I’m glad we are moving to a more rural area in acton/agua dulce.

  14. Krista Fish Krista Fish says:

    Another reason I’m thankful I no longer live there. Traffic traffic traffic. Always traffic.

  15. Just could not get out of Santa Clarita this morning. Missed AM work.

  16. Just could not get out of Santa Clarita this morning. Missed AM work.

  17. Lindsay Johnson says:

    Got MiLK??! Overturn Happened at 10:22pm the night before! Didn’t see it on the late night news. What is taking CHP and caltrans so long to clear?? Sigalert til1:30pm?= 15 HRs!! Are we using horses to right the truck??! Ridiculous!!

  18. Brian Durand Brian Durand says:

    There it is Jessica Marshall

  19. I’m going to guess that this is why there was so much traffic on Golden Valley when I was taking my son to school.

  20. Lewis Sai Lewis Sai says:

    It took me 2 hours to drive to Northridge. I finally arrived to my 9:30 class at 10:30 and sat down for 15 minutes 😡

  21. Article says nothing about the driver :( or did I miss it?

  22. Lisa Gervasi McGeorge everyday 😡

  23. Becky Rush Adler see…

  24. Is it clear now? Does anyone know?

  25. I love living here but the traffic is a nightmare. Luckily I will only have to put up with driving to the valley until March 30 when I retire.

  26. For some reason Soledad Canyon was closed down completely at Valley Center. Forced everyone onto Newhall Ranch Road!! It took me an hour and 10 minutes to get from Canyon Country to Newhall this morning!! Argg!
    Anyone know why Soledad was shut down??

  27. Fred Short Fred Short says:

    I guess this is why! Anne-Marije Short-Corporaal

  28. Has this cleared up yet? I’m thinking not by the bumper to bumper traffic around 10:30am on Newhall Avenue – gridlock of cars all the way from Railroad Avenue to the 14S.

  29. I feel like a cow being funneled through the only gate out of scv! So ridiculous. MOOOOOO! Instead of my commute it should be called “my funnel”

  30. Nicole KovachRon Kovach

  31. Matt Bilyeu Matt Bilyeu says:

    Cant wait until there are 21,000 more homes out in SCV……traffic is gonna be top-notch!

  32. Yesi Love Yesi Love says:

    Ana G LR that’s why there was traffic

  33. Yesi Love Yesi Love says:

    Ana G LR that’s why there was traffic

  34. And 150,000 more homes are coming, give or take! And of course I hope that the driver is OK!

  35. John Gilbert John Gilbert says:

    The thundering herd came up and over from Plum Canyon trying to get to the 14. Made a 3 mile trip from Whites Cyn. Rd. to Golden Valley Rd a 20 min. creepy crawling nightmare with 8 miles to go to Mission Hills. Welcome to the “Little San Fernando Valley.”

  36. Lina Boulos Lina Boulos says:

    It is better . just take the old Rd to Pico and then 5 S

  37. No use crying over spilled milk !
    ❤️
    Sorry I couldn’t resist !

  38. And this is why I want to move! Karina Christopherson

  39. Karen Harris Karen Harris says:

    Commuting our here has become a nightmare.

  40. KJ Slo KJ Slo says:

    Why is it always a big rig?

  41. Telecommuting needs to be more the normal routine now. This is crazy!

  42. Maria Garcia Maria Garcia says:

    Everyday is a nightmare trying to get out of scv

  43. Yep sure was!! I turned around and went home. Can’t wait to move in a couple months !

  44. Bob Long Bob Long says:

    Hey, I’ve got a great idea, let’s build some more houses, traffic aint so bad!

  45. Denny Twigg Denny Twigg says:

    Why don’t we have a loop??
    Connection to 118 and or 210?

  46. http://user.govoutreach.com/santaclarita/support.php?classificationId=10530
    Make a complaint!! No way to get out of SCV and more developments to come. This is the 3rd time this month that it’s taken me 1 hour 30 minutes to drive 10 miles to Granada Hills

  47. I saw the sigalert 530 am. It looked bad!

  48. Jennifer this was the issue this AM

  49. Peter you picked a great day to be off

  50. Hidden Valley residents are really screwed. The city decided to seal us up with no access to Lyons avenue. The gate worked well. We’d like it back.

  51. I had to be in Moorpark by 10am. Waze took me down the 126 and I was only 30 min late yay! It was a great alternative…if you needed to get to chatsworth, simi, Woodland Hills or the west valley.

  52. Waze was still trying to send people to 5 frwy parking lot…no bueno. Ignored & took 14.
