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 99/Hosking Avenue Interchange Project

February 27 - March 6, 2015

The contractor has removed the eastern half of 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

February 27 - March 6, 2015

Motorists should anticipate nighttime lane closures on State Route 58 between State Route 99 and Cottonwood Road, Sundays through Thursdays, 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. 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.

This work will require stopping traffic for brief periods while power lines are pulled across the roadway. Work will take place between midnight and 4 a.m. on both nights.

Motorists are advised that the utility work will continue into spring along Rosedale Highway also requiring 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.
