McBean Parkway Pedestrian Bridge Installation Starting August 4
Residents to Expect Closures During Construction
On Friday, August 4, the City of Santa Clarita will begin installation of a new pre-fabricated steel truss pedestrian bridge across McBean Parkway between Gamble House Court and Arroyo Park Drive. The previous bridge was aged and decayed and was removed in June. This project is part of the City’s plan to sustain public infrastructure. After the new steel bridge is installed, reconstruction of the bridge approach and pathway will begin. All construction on this project is anticipated to be completed and the bridge re-opened by mid-September.
During Friday’s construction, which begins at 10:00 p.m. and is expected to end at 8:30 a.m., a full road closure of McBean Parkway between Del Monte Drive and Arroyo Park Drive will be required in order to install the new bridge. Electronic message boards and detour signs 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.
Most of the remaining construction will take place between the hours of 8:30 am and 3:30 pm Monday through Friday, excluding holidays. Temporary lane closures will continue to be necessary during construction and other work may need to be completed during night hours as well.
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.
