Construction to occur through early August
UPDATE: NEW DATES FOR CONSTRUCTION. READ UPDATED PRESS RELEASE HERE: http://www.santa-clarita.com/Home/Components/News/News/5089/1230
Starting Wednesday, July 5, 2017, developer TMC Hollis LLC, with assistance from the City of Santa Clarita, will begin a five-week project to install a reinforced concrete box storm drain under Railroad Avenue. The storm drain will improve drainage of the surrounding area. The work includes temporary removal of the median on Railroad Avenue north of Oak Ridge Drive. Railroad Avenue will also be restriped from 300 feet south of Oak Ridge Drive to roughly 1,000 feet south of Drayton Street to allow one lane of traffic to remain open in each direction during the construction period. Construction hours are from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., Monday through Saturday. The project is expected to be completed before the commencement of the school year.
Residents are asked to be aware of scheduled lane closures and to expect slight delays. Electronic message boards will be posted to inform motorists of upcoming lane closures. Residents are reminded to please reduce their speed through the construction zone for the safety of the public and the contractor’s employees.
The City of Santa Clarita thanks community members in advance for their understanding and support of this project. All measures will be taken to complete the project in a safe and timely manner.
