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!

 

24th Street Improvement Project

December 12-19, 2014

Motorists are advised to anticipate nighttime work on State Route 178 just east of M Street tonight, December 17, 2014, weather permitting. This work was rescheduled from last week due to the storm. Crews will be performing pavement testing in both directions for the final design of the 24th Street Improvement Project. Work is scheduled to begin at 9 p.m. and is expected to take about four hours to complete. No lane closures are required for this work; however the testing utilizes a slow moving vehicle on the roadway so motorists should stay alert and watch for construction personnel and equipment while driving through this area.

 

State Route 99/Hosking Avenue Interchange Project

December 12-19, 2014

The contractor for the State Route 99/Hosking Avenue Interchange plans to set concrete barrier rail alongside State Route 99 on Friday, December 19 and Monday, December 22, weather permitting. This work will require closing the outside northbound and outside southbound travel lanes in this area from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. The lane closures will be between Panama Lane and State Route 119 (Taft Highway) in the vicinity of the future interchange at Hosking Avenue.

Hosking Avenue, between H Street and Silver Dollar Way, will close on January 6, 2015 so the contractor for the State Route 99/Hosking Avenue Interchange can begin preparing the existing bridge over State Route 99 for removal. Bridge demolition is expected to follow in mid-January.

This section of Hosking Avenue 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

December 12-19, 2014

The 24-hour closure remains in effect at the State Route 58/Chester Avenue-H Street westbound on-ramp through December 19, 2014. During this closure, 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.

Nighttime lane closures on State Route 58, between State Route 99 and Cottonwood Road, are in effect Sunday through Thursday nights from 7 p.m. through 6 a.m. the following morning. These closures may affect either lane in each direction; and when work is adjacent to an on- or off-ramp, the ramp will be closed while work is underway. At least one lane in each direction is expected to be open to freeway traffic at all times.

Motorists should also anticipate closures on Cottonwood Road, Madison Street and P Street, Monday through Friday, between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. 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.

SR 178/Morning Drive Interchange

December 12-19, 2014

 

Motorists are advised that contractors will be removing an overhead utility line in the vicinity of State Route 178 and Morning Drive this week. This work will be conducted between the hours of 6 a.m. and 4 p.m., and is anticipated to delay traffic for approximately 10 minutes during construction operations. Commuters are encouraged to avoid this area during project work hours and use alternative routes if possible.

Crews continue to work on the new bridge structure and roadway for the future freeway lanes. Work is expected to take place off the traveled roadway. The speed limit through the bypass around the construction zone is 40 mph.

Westside Parkway Phase 6C

December 12-19, 2014

Renfro Road remains closed to traffic during bridge construction. Motorists can detour around the closure via Allen Road and Brimhall Road. The contractor is paving the new freeway lanes and working at various locations along the new alignment, but no additional impacts to traffic are anticipated.
