Post Date:11/01/2018 12:35 PM

Expected to be completed early next year, the City has started infrastructure improvements along Railroad Canyon Road between Grape Street and Canyon Hills Road.

The Railroad Canyon Road Widening Project will expand capacity to three lanes of traffic in each direction between Grape Street and Canyon Hills Road.

To accommodate the lane widening, the project will also include the relocation of utility infrastructure, the creation of improved drainage systems, and full rehabilitation of the roadway. Work has already begun to move the utility infrastructure. 

During construction, lanes will be greatly reduced on Railroad Canyon Road. Commuters are urged to choose alternate routes during construction to avoid significant delays due to construction.
