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!

 

State Route 178 Widening Project

March 27 - April 3, 2015

PG&E is relocating gas pipelines along Highway 178 in Bakersfield from Valley Street to Park Palisade Drive in advance of the State Route 178 Widening Project. Work will take place Monday through Thursday during normal business hours, and is expected to be completed by August. The majority of work will take place on the shoulder of the highway and traffic controls will be set up in the area. Periodic lane closures will take place due to work crossing intersections.

State Route 99/Hosking Avenue Interchange Project

March 27 - April 3, 2015

The contractor has removed the Hosking Avenue Bridge across State Route 99, and Hosking Avenue, between H Street and Silver Dollar Way, 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

March 27 - April 3, 2015

Motorists should anticipate nighttime lane closures on State Route 58 between H Street and Cottonwood Road, from March 29 - April 2, between the hours of 7 p.m. and 6 a.m. The lane closures will affect the outside lanes in both directions of travel, but at least one lane will remain open in each direction while work is underway.

The nighttime lane closures are needed to make shoulder repairs. Motorists are advised to stay alert, obey construction signage, and watch for construction crews and equipment while driving through the area.

Rosedale Highway Widening

March 27 - April 3, 2015

 

Motorists are advised that PG&E is performing utility work along Rosedale Highway, which may require intermittent shoulder closures on both the north and south side of the highway. Shoulder closures may be in effect on weekdays between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.

Westside Parkway Phase 6C

March 27 - April 3, 2015

The contractor has shifted traffic to the new Westside Parkway/Stockdale Highway at-grade intersection at the western end of the project. This is a new configuration for this section of Stockdale Highway only; motorists will not be able to enter the freeway from this location at this time. For the next few weeks, traffic will travel through this area uninterrupted, but motorists are advised to stay alert to upcoming changes as this will become a signalized intersection once the freeway portion of the project opens to traffic.

The speed limit through this area is 15 mph.
