They closed the street after like 10 minutes because the road was getting flooded. Traffic backed up for a couple of lights.” It took Valencia Water about an hour to shut down the water, and three southbound lanes on Bouquet Canyon Road reopened about 3:15 p.m., Pivetti said. “It was flooding and it got mud out on the road,” Pivetti said. “We’re getting that cleaned up.” About 30 homes, an area county fire station and several businesses lost water service, but it was all restored within three hours, Valencia Water officials said. As for the broken signal, Pivetti said: “The repairs on the signal will continue.” SAUGUS – A city traffic signal repair crew ruptured a water line Thursday and sent a geyser of water shooting some 100 feet into the air, disrupting traffic along busy Bouquet Canyon Road during the lunch hour. Water erupted about 11:40 a.m. from the southwest corner of Bouquet Canyon Road at Seco Canyon Road, said Gus Pivetti, a city of Santa Clarita senior traffic engineer. Workers were repairing a traffic signal pole that had been knocked down by a vehicle when they hit the water line operated by Valencia Water Co., Pivetti said. Raul Diaz, 24, witnessed the dousing from a corner Shell gas station. last_img read more
