State Route 99/Hosking Avenue Interchange Project

January 26-30, 2015

Demolition of the Hosking Avenue Bridge over State Route 99 is expected to begin during nighttime hours next week, weather permitting.  The anticipated lane closures and detours for State Route 99 traffic are as follows:  

Sunday, January 25: The inside lane in both directions of State Route 99 will be closed in the vicinity of the Hosking Avenue Bridge between the hours of 9 p.m. and 6 a.m.  After 11:30 p.m., the second inside lanes, in both directions, may be closed. Two lanes are expected to remain open in each direction while work is performed. The closures are needed for the placement of concrete barrier rail and to restripe the roadway. Following this work, the inside lane, in both directions, will be closed through late 2015. Three lanes will remain open to traffic during the majority of construction for the new interchange.

Monday, January 26 and Tuesday, January 27 – The contractor plans to remove the west half of the bridge, which will require a full closure of the southbound lanes, both nights. Southbound lanes, between Panama Lane and State Route 119 (Taft Highway), will be closed between 11 p.m. and 5 a.m. Preparation work for the freeway closure is expected to begin at 9 p.m. each night and motorists will need to slow down while traveling through this area. During the closure, traffic will exit State Route 99 at Panama Lane and continue southbound on South H Street. Traffic can re-enter the freeway at State Route 119. (see Southbound SR 99 detour map)

Wednesday, January 28 and Thursday, January 29 – The contractor plans to remove the east side of the bridge, which will require a full closure of the northbound lanes, between Panama Lane and State Route 119 (Taft Highway), from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. Preparation will begin at 9 p.m. each night. During the closure, northbound traffic will exit State Route 99 at State Route 119 and continue north on South H Street. Traffic can re-enter the freeway at Panama Lane. (see Northbound SR 99 detour map).

This schedule is subject to change and updated information will be posted as necessary.

Hosking Avenue, between H Street and Silver Dollar Way, is will remain closed until late 2015 to allow for construction of the new interchange. During this closure, motorists will need to use State Route 119 (Taft Highway) or Panama Lane to cross the freeway.

SR 58 Gap Closure Project

January 26-30, 2015

Motorists should anticipate nighttime lane closures on State Route 58 between State Route 99 and Cottonwood Road, January 20 through January 22, between the hours of 7 p.m. and 6 a.m. The lane closures may be in effect for either the inside or outside lanes, depending upon work, and may affect both directions of travel. At least one lane will remain open in each direction while work is underway.

Nighttime lane closures in this area are expected to continue intermittently through February. Motorists are advised to slow down and pay attention to construction signage while traveling through the construction area.

The daytime closure of the State Route 58/Chester Avenue-H Street westbound on-ramp will continue through February. The ramp will be open on Monday, January 19, due to the holiday. This closure will generally be in effect Monday through Friday, from 6 a.m. through 4 p.m. 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 also anticipate closures on Cottonwood Road, Madison Street and P Street between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, through early February. 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.

Auburn Street will also be closed just west of Morning Drive for improvements to the intersection. During the closure, access will be maintained to and from Canyon Hills Assembly of God facilities and parking lots from Auburn Street.

Rosedale Highway Widening

January 26-30, 2015

Motorists are advised that utility work will continue next week along Rosedale Highway, between Gibson Street and Mohawk Street, requiring intermittent shoulder closures on both the north and south side of the highway.

 

The shoulder closures are necessary to allow PG&E to work on utility relocations in advance of the Rosedale Highway Widening Project. New poles are currently being installed so power lines can be moved away from the future road widening limits.  Work will continue westward in the coming weeks and is expected to be completed this spring.

 

Shoulder closures may be in effect on weekdays during this period, between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.  Lane closures may be required as work progresses. Information will be updated as it becomes available.
