Magic Mountain Parkway/I-5 Improvements Making Progress
Construction projects completed along pipeline.
The rehabilitation of the Los Angeles County Sanitation District's main sewer trunk line and ExxonMobil's major pipelines are complete along Magic Mountain Parkway and The Old Road. Two lanes are now open to vehicular traffic for both eastbound and westbound traffic on Magic Mountain Parkway. This enables us to expand our construction activities for the proposed widening of Magic Mountain Parkway and the realignment of The Old Road.
The utility relocation work is 90 percent complete. Time Warner Cable, Qwest, and Crimson Pipeline are continuing with their relocation work in the respective areas. Please expect continuing intermittent nighttime work on Magic Mountain Parkway, between The Old Road and Tourney Road, for the various utility improvements between the hours of 10:00 p.m. and 4:00 a.m.
The detour at the northbound Magic Mountain Parkway off-ramp and Interstate 5 will continue throughout the construction of the retaining walls, ramp widening, and removal of utility lines. This ongoing ramp closure ensures there will not be any additional detours needed after the construction in this area is complete. This work is anticipated to continue through August 2008. As a suggested alternative for access to the Valencia Industrial Center, please use the off-ramp at State Route 126 and Newhall Ranch Road.
Caltrans' traffic timing division is coordinating closely with City project staff on signal timing at Magic Mountain Parkway and The Old Road. Detours and roadway signs are in place to assist the operational needs of the public in this area. Please proceed with caution. We appreciate motorists' continued patience and attention to the temporary change in roadway during this public improvement.
