A capital project adds to the City’s infrastructure. Projects include such things as constructing curbs, gutters, sidewalks, and public access ramps. Examples of capital projects might include the Santa Clarita Sports Complex, constructing the Newhall Metrolink Station, and realigning and upgrading Railroad Avenue. Additionally, constructing storm drains, widening roads, installing and upgrading traffic signals, and improving roadway conditions by realigning, striping, overlaying, and slurrying roads contribute to improving the City’s infrastructure. Capital projects also include right and left-turn pockets, installing sewers, constructing or upgrading roadway medians to beautify the City, etc.
The City receives numerous requests for improvements each year. Engineering staff organizes all requests into a logical format. Staff can then evaluate the pros and cons of each proposal and recommend appropriate projects to be included in the City’s Capital Improvement Program, utilizing available funds.

GOLDEN VALLEY ROAD BRIDGE COMPLETE!
Introducing the Connie Worden-Roberts Memorial Bridge
On Tuesday, October 4, 2016, the City of Santa Clarita hosted a public ribbon cutting event to celebrate the completion of the Golden Valley Road Bridge Widening Project and to host a dedication ceremony of the Connie Worden-Roberts Memorial Bridge.
The Golden Valley Road Bridge widening over the 14 Freeway at Golden Valley Road will improve traffic flow entering and exiting the 14 Freeway. The project added an additional two lanes of travel, one in each direction, for a total of four through lanes. Improvements also included a dedicated left turn lane for the southbound 14 Freeway, two left turn lanes for the northbound 14 Freeway and a protected path for pedestrians and cyclists on the south side of the bridge.
The Golden Valley Road Bridge was renamed in honor of Connie Worden-Roberts, a local advocate and Santa Clarita community leader known for her vital role in the formation of the City of Santa Clarita in 1987 and often referred to as the “Road Warrior” for her efforts behind the development of the Cross-Valley Connector.
This multi-million dollar project was made possible with funding partner Metro and in conjunction with Caltrans.
