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

October 17-24, 2014

Construction crews have started driving piles during daytime hours for the retaining wall along the north side of State Route 58 west of H Street. This work requires a daytime closure of the State Route 58/Chester Avenue-H Street westbound on-ramp from Monday through Friday. Work is expected to take place between the hours of 6 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. each day. Motorists should plan to use alternate routes to access State Route 58 and State Route 99 during these hours. 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.

Motorists should anticipate lanenighttime lane closures while traveling on State Route 58, between State Route 99 and Cottonwood Road, October 19-23, 2014 between 8:30 p.m. and continuing through 6 a.m. the following morning. Electrical work will require lane closures of the outside traffic lane on both eastbound and westbound State Route 58 in the vicinity of the work area. When work is performed in the vicinity of 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. All lanes are expected to open for the morning commute.

SR 178/Morning Drive Interchange

October 17-24, 2014

Motorists traveling along State Route 178 near Canteria Drive may be required to stop for short periods of time next week while the contractor for the State Route 178/Morning Drive project conducts paving operations at the east end of the job site. This work is expected to begin Thursday, October 23, 2014 and continue through Tuesday, October 28, 2014, excluding the weekend. The work will require intermittent flagging operations, and motorists should anticipate having to stop for up to five minutes between the hours of 6 a.m. and 4 p.m., each work day.

Crews continue to work on the new bridge structure and roadway for the future freeway lanes. Work is expected to take place off the traveled roadway. The speed limit through the bypass around the construction zone is 40 mph.
