The city of Santa Clarita will install a new steel truss bridge to replace an older structure over El Paseo Drive between Alberto Court and Baleria Court starting Monday, Nov. 4. The pedestrian bridge is expected to be closed for about 10 weeks and anticipated to open January 2014.

Construction hours will be Monday through Friday between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m., excluding holidays. Residents should expect periodic construction noise and lane closures during construction, and are advised to take alternate routes around Alberto Court and Baleria Court.

The construction project is part of the city’s efforts to upgrade the paseo infrastructure to maintain the area’s high-quality bridges and trails. Nearby residents were provided with construction notices containing details of the project and contact information. Signage will be posted along the paseos and at the bridge approaches.
