The city of Santa Clarita is scheduled to start refurbishing approximately 2 miles of Railroad Avenue between Magic Mountain Parkway and 15th Street on June 24. 

The construction is expected to last until the end of September with work taking place overnight, between 7 p.m. to 4 a.m., to reduce traffic impacts and accelerate the work schedule. 

The city’s improvements use a cold in-place recycling process, which requires fewer construction days, resulting in a reduced impact on local traffic and fewer lane closures. 

CIR reduces greenhouse gas emissions and energy consumption by approximately 70%. The city anticipates the CIR process will result in roughly $2 million in savings on the $2.76 million project. 

The Railroad Avenue improvements are part of the city’s Road Rehab program, which will also include treatment and repairs for residential and arterial roads throughout Santa Clarita over the next few months.
