State Route 178

September 3-11, 2015

.

A lane closure is planned for the westbound inside lane on State Route 178 in the vicinity of the Fairfax Road Bridge on Thursday, September 3rd and Friday, September 4th. The lane closure is needed to allow for the replacement of a new sign panel on the bridge. Work is expected to be underway between the hours of 6 a.m. and 4 p.m.

East of Fairfax Road, work continues in the vicinity of the new State Route 178/Morning Drive Interchange project. This work is not expected to affect traffic, but drivers should stay alert and watch for construction crews and equipment that may be entering or leaving work areas.

Utility companies are still working along State Route 178, between Canteria Drive and Miramonte Drive. Traffic control will be in place as needed and motorists should stay alert to changing road conditions.

Beltway Operational Improvements

September 3-11, 2015

The southbound Ming Avenue on-ramp to State Route 99 is scheduled to be closed from 9 p.m. Thursday, September 3rd through 5 a.m. Friday, September 4th. The southbound outside lane on State Route 99 will also be closed in this area. The closures are needed to allow for paving on the on-ramp. In addition, the outside northbound lane on State Route 99, between Ming Avenue and Wilson Road, will be closed tonight between the hours of 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. to allow the contractor for the Beltway Operational Improvements Project to remove material from the construction site. The remaining lanes on State Route 99 will remain open while work is underway and all lanes, as well as the ramp, are expected to be open in time for the morning commute.

Iintermittent closures of the southbound outside lane on Wible Road, between Belle Terrace and Wilson Road, will continue for several weeks. These closures are needed to allow the contractor for the Beltway Operational Improvements Project to off-load materials for a new retaining wall in this area. These lane closures may occur between the hours of 6:30 a.m. through 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. All other lanes on Wible Road are expected to remain open while work is underway.

Construction crews will be working during daytime hours along State Route 99, between State Route 58 and Wilson Road, and along State Route 58, between State Route 99 and Hughes Lane. Daytime work will take place behind the recently-placed temporary concrete barriers and is not expected to affect traffic. However, motorists are advised to stay alert to changing conditions and watch for construction workers and equipment while driving through these construction zones.
