Supervisors approve new speed limit, traffic controls

Los Angeles County supervisors voted Tuesday to establish a 50 mph speed limit on Golden Valley Road between Dorothy Street and Plum Canyon Road.

Per state law, speed limits for road segments are set based on the average speed of vehicles traveling on the road.
In 2010, the Santa Clarita City Council approved setting a 50 mph speed limit for portions of Golden Valley Road that are within the city’s boundaries.

Since the segment from Dorothy Street to Plum Canyon Road lies in an unincorporated area, it fell to the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors to approve the speed limit.

Supervisors Tuesday also approved new traffic controls on West Hills Drive near West Creek Academy in Valencia.
The supervisors voted to establish multi-way stop controls for eastbound, westbound and northbound traffic on West Hills Drive at the driveway to West Creek Academy.

A multi-way stop control means stop signs will be placed at multiple entrances into the same intersection, according to Caltrans.

These controls are often considered when an intersection features heavy pedestrian and bicycle traffic.

Supervisors also approved regulations prohibiting vehicles from stopping at any time on certain segments of West Hills Drive.

Those segments include the north side of West Hills Drive between Copper Hill Drive and the driveway for West Creek Academy and both sides of West Creek Drive between Copper Hill Drive and Vista Del Rio Drive.
