Valencia Boulevard street maintenance continues tonight

The city of Santa Clarita continues a night-time street maintenance project on the eastbound side of Valencia Boulevard from the Interstate 5 to McBean Parkway tonight.

The work, part of the city's annual overlay and slurry seal project, started Monday night and will be conducted at night to avoid disrupting busy daytime traffic.

The Valencia Boulevard project is scheduled for completion Sept. 22. City staff began distributing letters to area residents two weeks prior to Monday's start date to provide them prior notice of the night construction.

"To avoid creating congestion on Valencia Boulevard during busy daytime hours, the city resolved to conduct the street overlay project at night," Mayor Frank Ferry said. "Because the work will be noisy, city staff distributed notices 14 days prior to the expected construction start date to prepare residents living adjacent to the project area."

The city's annual overlay and slurry seal project provides a smoother ride for traffic, enhances the appearance of roadways and surrounding areas, and extends the life of local roadways.

The project involves the annual evaluation and identification of local streets for their need for asphalt maintenance treatments.

Construction as part of the 2008/09 overlay and slurry seal project began in early July and is expected to continue through October.
