Highway 126 & Commerce Center Drive Interchange Project

There will be a Public Hearing Thursday, June 23, 6 p.m. for Highway 126 & Commerce Center Drive grade-separated interchange project.



What's Being Planned?

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), District 7, in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), Los Angeles County, and the Newhall Land and Farming Company (Newhall), is proposing to construct a grade-separated interchange at the existing SR 126 and Commerce Center Drive intersection, with a new overpass structure for Commerce Center Drive over SR 126 located within unincorporated LA County west of the City of Santa Clarita.  The new interchange would provide full movements for traffic between Commerce Center Drive and SR 126.

Why This Ad?

Caltrans has studied the effects this project may have on the environment.  Our studies show it will not significantly affect the quality of the environment.  This notice is to tell you of the preparation of the Initial Study/Environmental Assessment (IS/EA) and of its availability for you to read.  A hearing will be held to give you an opportunity to talk about certain design features of the project with Caltrans staff before the final design is selected.
