McBean Pedestrian Bridge Set to Reopen
Bridge Adjacent to Valencia Summit Park to Reopen to Public this Weekend
The pedestrian bridge crossing over McBean Parkway is scheduled to open once again to the public, the City of Santa Clarita announced Friday. The bridge, located between Gamble House Court and Arroyo Park Drive, adjacent to Valencia Summit Park, is expected to be open in time for weekend foot traffic.
Construction on the bridge began on June 9, 2017, when demolition of the previous timber bridge took place. The timber bridge, which was decayed and aging, has been replaced with a new, pre-fabricated steel truss bridge.
The project is part of the City’s commitment to sustaining public infrastructure and results in a safer and sturdier bridge for pedestrians crossing this portion of McBean Parkway. For more information about this project, contact Julia Regan, Assistant Engineer at (661) 255-4301.
