CLOSURE PLANNED WORK CONTINUES ON A.V. FREEWAY.

Byline: Daily News

AGUA DULCE -- Caltrans will close the Antelope Valley Freeway in both directions early Sunday at Escondido Canyon Road as it continues construction work aimed at stopping rockslides.

The southbound side of the freeway will be closed to traffic from 4 to 9 a.m. The northbound freeway will be closed from 5 to 9 a.m.

The closures are expected to recur every Sunday for about three months, Caltrans officials said.

Closure and detour information will be posted on electronic message signs to direct motorists along Escondido Canyon and Agua Dulce Canyon roads. California Highway Patrol officers will help direct traffic.

The closure is in relation to a $12.6 million slope stabilization project along the freeway between Soledad Canyon Road in Santa Clarita and Escondido Canyon Road.

Workers are cutting back the rocky slopes that border the freeway where it cuts through hills and installing retention systems using cable net or wire mesh.

Estimated to be completed in spring 2008, the project will reduce rock falling onto the freeway shoulders, Caltrans officials said.
