Construction Update


Stay alert while driving through workzones and follows detour signs. Watch for construction personnel, equipment and vehicles leaving a construction site and merging with traffic. Motorists should use alternate routes when possible. No pedestrians are allowed in construction work areas for safety reasons. Slow for the cone zone!

 

SR 58 Gap Closure Project

November 1-7, 2014

The State Route 58/Chester Avenue-H Street westbound on-ramp will be under a 24-hour closure beginning November 2, 2014 and continuing through November 21, 2014. The closure is necessary to allow the contractor for the State Route 58 Gap Closure project to work on a retaining wall on the north side of the freeway. During this closure, motorists can use the State Route 58/Union Avenue Interchange, located approximately one mile to the east, or continue west on Brundage Lane for approximately one mile to access northbound or southbound State Route 99.

 

Nighttime lane closures continue on State Route 58, between State Route 99 and Cottonwood Road. These closures will be in effect each night from 7 p.m. through 6 a.m. the following morning, November 2-6, 2014. The closures may affect either lane in each direction; and when work is adjacent to an on- or off-ramp, the ramp will be closed while work is underway. At least one lane in each direction is expected to be open to freeway traffic at all times.

 

Motorists should also anticipate closures on Cottonwood Road, Madison Street and P Street, while the contractor completes work beneath the bridges. Closures may occur between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. while work is underway. No two adjacent arterial streets will be closed at any given time so motorists can use the closest arterial, to the east or west, to cross the freeway while work is underway.

Westside Parkway Phase 6C

November 1-7, 2014
