Beginning at 3:40 a.m. on Sunday, May 8, 2016, several street closures will be in effect throughout Santa Clarita for the 2016 Wings for Life World Run. The 35-plus mile course will have rolling closures which will see roads close and re-open as racers pass through various segments of the course.
A schedule of estimated times for closures and re-openings can be found online at Santa-Clarita.com/WingsForLife. Most street closures are expected to be re-opened by approximately 6:10 a.m., if not earlier.
The City strongly suggests residents avoid travel, if possible, between the hours of 3:00 a.m. and 7:00 a.m. on Sunday morning. Although the event will be held at a time when traffic volume is low, motorists traveling during that time may be detoured.
Residents should be advised that Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies will be deployed along the route to help ensure public safety for both participants and motorists, and will strictly enforce posted road closures. Additionally, emergency response vehicles will have unimpeded access to the entire Santa Clarita Valley for the duration of the event.
