A capital project adds to the City’s infrastructure. Projects include such things as constructing curbs, gutters, sidewalks, and public access ramps. Examples of capital projects might include the Santa Clarita Sports Complex, constructing the Newhall Metrolink Station, and realigning and upgrading Railroad Avenue. Additionally, constructing storm drains, widening roads, installing and upgrading traffic signals, and improving roadway conditions by realigning, striping, overlaying, and slurrying roads contribute to improving the City’s infrastructure. Capital projects also include right and left-turn pockets, installing sewers, constructing or upgrading roadway medians to beautify the City, etc.
The City receives numerous requests for improvements each year. Engineering staff organizes all requests into a logical format. Staff can then evaluate the pros and cons of each proposal and recommend appropriate projects to be included in the City’s Capital Improvement Program, utilizing available funds.

NEWHALL GATEWAY BEAUTIFICATION
The Newhall Gateway Beautification project is located at the State Route 14 on-ramp and off-ramp interchange at Newhall Avenue.
The current design project will provide for plans to beautify this location. This will be done using landscaping to enhance the appearance of the project area. Landscaping such as trees, shrubs and groundcover will bring out the natural beauty of the surrounding area.
Efficient irrigation, low water use plant material, and the balance of hardscape and landscape are elements to be included in the drought conscious design. As well as creating hardscape to complement the landscape.
The existing project location includes approximately 200,000 square feet of blighted, unimproved land with no existing irrigation. The beautification of the area surrounding the interchange will improve existing conditions, highlight the mountainous terrain of the area, enhance previously-constructed Caltrans freeway infrastructure, and enhance a primary entry point for the Newhall community.
As residents and visitors to the Santa Clarita Valley exit the freeway at Newhall Avenue, they will be greeted by attractive landscaping and pleasing hardscape.
This project supports the Community Beautification and Sustainability theme of the City of Santa Clarita’s (City) five-year strategic plan, Santa Clarita 2025.
