The newly widened northbound off-ramp at the Interstate 5/Magic Mountain Parkway interchange is now open.

The off-ramp officially opened on Friday, June 19 and had been closed to traffic since May 31 for Phase II of the city's I-5/Magic Mountain Interchange project. The ramp widening project was completed in 19 days.

The off-ramp has detoured along Wayne Mills Place to Tourney Road for more than one year. With the widened ramp re-opening on schedule, the regular off-ramp will now be open permanently.

The entire project will be completed in July 2009, a month's time, according to the project manager, James Tong.

"The construction project completion and off-ramp opening comes at a perfect time," said Mayor Frank Ferry. "The off-ramp can now accommodate the boom of Magic Mountain's busy summer season. The project is funded through Los Angeles County, Newhall Land, Caltrans and Metro."

The completion of the multi-million dollar I-5/Magic Mountain Interchange project, which includes ramps widening and infrastructure improvements, will benefit Santa Clarita's transportation system by improving mobility, enhancing safety, alleviating congestion and greatly increasing the capacity of the interchanges and local roadways to meet future anticipated development and traffic growth.
