May 22-29, 2015

Motorists should anticipate increased truck traffic on State Route 119 (Taft Highway) and the area roads included below, through the month of May.

Falsework is a temporary structure that provides support for the bridge components during construction. The falsework will span State Route 99 and will require full freeway closures, between Panama Lane and State Route 119 (Taft Highway), while the support structure is put in place. This work will be completed during nighttime hours, between the hours of 11 p.m. and 5 a.m., beginning Sunday, May 31, 2015. The contractor will begin the process of closing the freeway around 9 p.m. The southbound closures will continue nightly until the falsework for the west half of the bridge is in place.

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.
