Effective immediately on Wednesday, February 25, lanes have been closed on two different sections of roadway for emergency repair during contracted Southern California Edison projects.
Two southbound lanes are closed on Bouquet Canyon Road between Alamogordo Road and Seco Canyon Road for an emergency repair on a contracted vault project. During this emergency repair, Bouquet Canyon Road will be restricted to one southbound lane. All northbound lanes remain open.
In addition, all westbound lanes are closed on Decoro Drive between Dickason Drive and Copperstone Drive for emergency roadway repairs. Damage to a water line occurred, at approximately 2:00 a.m. this morning, during work on a Southern California Edison contracted underground conduit project. During this emergency repair, all westbound traffic on Decoro Drive will be redirected into a single left turn lane at Dickason Drive. All eastbound lanes on Decoro Drive will remain open.
Emergency work has been scheduled today and throughout the night for both repairs. At this time, all roads are expected to be open tomorrow for the morning commute.
Reduced speed through these construction zones will be enforced for the safety of the community and employees. The public is encouraged to use caution and drive safely through the area and choose alternates routes, if at all possible.
For additional details or questions about the project, please contact Southern California Edison at (800) 655-4555 or Mark Lindemann, Senior Public Works Inspector for the City of Santa Clarita, at (661) 255-4946.

UPDATE: Both roadways have been repaired, and all travel lanes are open for peak traffic volumes. The Southern California Edison project will continue with the previously implemented daytime lane closures on Decoro Drive and night time lane closures on Bouquet Canyon Road.
