Traffic Advisory: Road Work on Lyons Avenue Between Wiley Canyon Road and Walnut Street Begins June 30

June 18, 2014

Lyons Ave Construction June 2014

The City of Santa Clarita is scheduled to begin road work along Lyons Avenue, between Wiley Canyon Road and Walnut Street, on Monday, June 30, as part of the City’s annual street maintenance program.  Construction along this heavily-traveled corridor will only take place at night from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. Monday through Friday, and is expected to continue through mid-September 2014.

Road repairs will include grinding and paving to provide an enhanced, safer, and smoother ride.  Temporary re-striping of traffic lanes will take place in phases to accommodate traffic and construction, and grinding of asphalt will take place between 7 p.m. and 11 p.m. to help reduce inconveniences.


Residents and drivers in the area should anticipate traffic delays throughout construction.  Lane closures are expected during construction hours, with partial lane openings for traffic. Signs will be posted to alert drivers of the change and electronic message boards are in place now alerting drivers of the project.

For more information about the Lyons Avenue repaving project, please contact Project Manager Bill Whitlatch at (661) 290-2293 or by email at
