[City of Santa Clarita] - On Tuesday, October 4, 2016, the City of Santa Clarita hosted a public ribbon cutting event to celebrate the completion of the Golden Valley Road Bridge Widening Project and to host a dedication ceremony of the Connie Worden-Roberts Memorial Bridge.
The Golden Valley Road Bridge widening over the 14 Freeway at Golden Valley Road will improve traffic flow entering and exiting the 14 Freeway. The project added an additional two lanes of travel, one in each direction, for a total of four through lanes. Improvements also included a dedicated left turn lane for the southbound 14 Freeway, two left turn lanes for the northbound 14 Freeway and a protected path for pedestrians and cyclists on the south side of the bridge.
The Golden Valley Road Bridge was renamed in honor of Connie Worden-Roberts, a local advocate and Santa Clarita community leader known for her vital role in the formation of the City of Santa Clarita in 1987 and often referred to as the "Road Warrior" for her efforts behind the development of the Cross-Valley Connector.
This multi-million dollar project was made possible with funding partner Metro and in conjunction with Caltrans.
