On Wednesday, August 28, the Santa Clarita City Council held a groundbreaking ceremony for the Sand Canyon Road/ State Route 14 beautification project on the SR-14 on-ramp.
The project will improve 3.4 acres within the Caltrans rights of way at the Sand Canyon north and south bound on and off ramps. Environmentally-friendly landscaping will include sizeable oak trees, shrubs, and grasses, as well as low twisting stone walls and natural colored stone pavers.
Mayor Bob Kellar and the City Council talked about the importance of the Sand Canyon Road and SR 14 beautification project and how it will be a part of Santa Clarita’s commitment to beautifying all gateway corridors to provide a positive community image for residents and visitors.
Beautification of entry points also helps maintain higher property values and supports the City’s and other business organization’s effort to attract targeted companies to the area.
