[News Release] – The City of Santa Clarita will serve as a host city for the Wings for Life World Run on Sunday, May 4, 2014 at 3:00 a.m., impacting several local roads throughout the Santa Clarita Valley. As with any road-race running event, there will be partial to full closures for extended periods of time throughout the early morning hours.
The City strongly suggests residents avoid travel, if possible, between the hours of 2:40 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. on Sunday morning. The event is being held at a time when traffic volume is extremely low, so the inconvenience is expected to be minimal. However, motorists traveling during the time of the event may be detoured.
Residents should be advised that Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies will be deployed along the route to help ensure public safety for both participants and motorists, and will strictly enforce posted road closures. Additionally, emergency response vehicles will have unimpeded access to the entire Santa Clarita Valley for the duration of the event.
Due to an excessive heat forecast for the Santa Clarita Valley, the city of Santa Clarita will have its three branches of the Santa Clarita Public Library open as cooling centers beginning Tuesday, June 15.
