Traffic Notice- Community Advised to Plan Ahead for AMGEN Tour of California Race Street Closures

Post Date:05/02/2019

Traffic Notice

COMMUNITY ADVISED TO PLAN AHEAD FOR

AMGEN TOUR OF CALIFORNIA RACE STREET CLOSURES

 

On Saturday, May 18, 2019, the City of Santa Clarita will host the final Stage Start at the Westfield Valencia Town Center for both the Men’s and Women’s Races of the prestigious cycling race – the Amgen Tour of California. The much anticipated race will bring the world’s top cyclists to the City, as they cycle their way east through Santa Clarita and eventually out to Pasadena for the finish line. The race will also bring street closures to the area, and residents planning to travel on race day are advised to plan ahead by reviewing the closures. An interactive street closure map is also available at SantaClaritaTourofCA.com.

Specific streets that intersect the race route will be closed prior to the cyclists’ arrival, and will reopen after all race traffic is clear. Side street traffic will be allowed to cross the intersection during the estimated time closures only when safe to do so.

The following streets will be impacted on Saturday, May 18:
