Construction activities for The Old Road realignment and Magic Mountain Parkway widening at Interstate 5 will close the intersection for a week starting this morning, according to the latest update from the city of Santa Clarita, L.A. County, Newhall Land, Metro and Caltrans.

Security Paving Company Inc. will begin constructing temporary asphalt concrete pavement at the intersection, which will not be accessible until work is completed by the evening of Oct. 20.

Construction signs for alternate routes are posted to help drivers navigate to surrounding businesses and theme parks.

The intersection is scheduled to reopen to through traffic Tuesday morning, Oct. 21.

Additional road-widening work on Magic Mountain Parkway between Tourney Road and The Old Road will begin later this month and continue through February.

To accommodate traffic, motorists will be shifted onto two lanes for both east and westbound traffic on Magic Mountain Parkway.

The detour at the northbound Magic Mountain Parkway off-ramp and I-5 will remain throughout the ramp widening and removal of utility lines. 

A suggested alternative for access to the Valencia Industrial Center is the off-ramp at Highway 126 and Newhall Ranch Road.

Detours and road signs are in place to assist the operational needs of the public in this area.

Construction on the intersection began in July 2006 and is 50 percent complete. The $37 million project is slated for completion in December 2009.
