The project began in May 2012, and the California Department of Transportation has set the expected finish date in late 2014.

Though the project has caused staggered closures and detours throughout construction, Victor Lindenheim, executive director for the Golden State Gateway Coalition, said that they are “pleased with the progress.”

When the project is complete, there will be a designated southbound truck lane from the Lyons Ave./Pico Canyon Road off ramp to the Newhall Pass, and an extended northbound truck lane from the Newhall Pass.

Lindenheim said that this project brings many benefits for the Santa Clarita Valley and motorists passing through the area.

“The benefits of a project like that are huge,” he said. “They include, obviously, relieving traffic congestion, creating jobs, and separate safety–a very important benefit–separating slow-moving truck traffic from faster vehicle traffic in the other lanes.”

Lindenheim said that constructing the traffic lane has created an estimated 3,000 jobs and has helped stimulate commerce by bringing workers into the SCV.
