Mcbean Parkway Pedestrian Bridge Replacement Starting June 9

Bridge Replacement Project Happening June through September

Post Date:06/02/2017 2:41 PM

Starting on Friday, June 9, 2017, the City of Santa Clarita will begin replacing the existing pedestrian bridge that crosses McBean Parkway between Gamble House Court and Arroyo Park Drive with a pre-fabricated steel truss bridge. This project is part of the City’s plan to sustain public infrastructure and will replace the existing aging and decayed timber pedestrian bridge. The project is expected to take approximately 12 weeks. Most of the construction will take place between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, excluding holidays. 

Residents are asked to be aware of planned road closures and to plan their routes accordingly. The project will kick off on Friday, June 9 at 10:00 p.m. with the removal of the existing bridge. During this time, for the safety of motorists and pedestrians, a full road closure between Del Monte Drive and Arroyo Park Drive will be required. Another full road closure and night work will be required during the installation of the new bridge at the beginning of August. Temporary lane closures will be necessary during construction. There may be some other work completed during night hours as well. Electronic message boards will be posted to inform motorists of upcoming closures.  Reduced speed through the construction zone will be enforced 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.
