On Monday, August 1, an extension of Westridge Parkway opens to the public to provide a direct connection between Magic Mountain Parkway and Valencia Boulevard west of Interstate 5, providing and important link for local residences, schools and businesses.

The expanded roadway is approximately two-thirds of a mile in length and provides an alternative path of entry or exit for surrounding communities and a growing resident base within Valencia by FivePoint that began moving into their new homes last year.  

The opening of Westridge Parkway coincides with the 2022-23 school year at three neighboring schools. The new road provides an important alternate route to access local schools for children attending Oak Hills Elementary School within the Newhall School District, and both Rancho Pico Junior High School and West Ranch High School within the William S. Hart Union High School District.

CHP plans to maintain a presence on Westridge Parkway at the outset of the road opening, particularly as neighboring schools start their new school year.

The project extends from the State Route 14 (SR-14) interchange in Santa Clarita to just south of Parker Rd in Castaic. This is anticipated to be a 5-year construction project to enhance operational and safety features along 14-miles of the I-5 freeway, primarily through the addition of 14-miles of carpool lanes in each direction. 

The Department of Public Works will be resuming weekly street sweeping services to the unincorporated communities. Please see attached flyer for distribution and for more information.

On May 1, 2021, Public Works initiated a pilot twice-per-month street sweeping schedule for residential streets in unincorporated areas of Los Angeles County.  After receiving concerns from residents and further discussions with the Board Offices, we have jointly decided to transition back to weekly street sweeping starting November 1st, with all areas being restored to weekly street sweeping on November 15th.

Major streets will continue to be swept weekly.  As Public Works reverts back to weekly street sweeping, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Parking Bureau will assist by enforcing parking regulations. The following dates are important to remember:

  • November 1, 2021 – Parking Enforcement will begin issuing warnings stating that they will resume issuing citations for all signed street sweeping areas in unincorporated Los Angeles County starting November 15, 2021.
  • November 15, 2021 – Parking Enforcement will resume issuing citations for all signed street sweeping areas in unincorporated Los Angeles County.

This website has helpful information on our street sweeping operation including an interactive street sweeping schedule map, clean water requirements, street parking, observed holidays, tips and guidelines, and frequently asked questions.
