April 24-May 1, 2015

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

For the east side of the State Route 99/Hosking Avenue Interchange, truck will leave the Sports Village at Gosford Road and travel along State Route 119 to State Route 99. Trucks will then access the east side of the project from the freeway shoulder and return to State Route 119 via South H Street. It is expected that it will take about three weeks to import the dirt needed for the east side of the project.

For the west side of the interchange project, trucks will exit the State Farm Sports Village and use McCutchen Road/Hosking Avenue to reach the project site. They will then exit onto State Route 99 and return to the State Farm Sports Village via State Route 119.

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.
