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!

 

SR 58 Gap Closure Project

April 11-18, 2014

The Chester Avenue/H Street westbound on-ramp to State Route 58 is expected to be under a full, around-the-clock closure to all traffic through Friday, April 18, 2014. The closure is needed to facilitate modifications being made to an adjacent pump station in conjunction with the State Route 58 Gap Closure Project. During this period, motorists will need to 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 are also advised to anticipate nighttime lane closures on State Route 58 at the Bakersfield Corral Overhead through Thursday, April 17, 2014. The lane closures will be in effect between the hours of 7 p.m. and 6 a.m. each night. The lanes will be open to traffic during daytime hours. The Bakersfield Corral Overhead is a bridge crossing over the railroad tracks between the Union Avenue and Cottonwood Road Interchanges.

The contractor continues to work within the freeway median during daytime hours. This work is being performed behind concrete barriers and is not expected to impact traffic; however, motorists should remain alert while traveling through the area and watch for construction personnel and vehicles that may be entering or leaving the freeway from the median.

 

SR 178/Morning Drive Interchange

April 11-18, 2014

The contractor for the State Route 178/Morning Drive Interchange project moved eastbound State Route 178 traffic onto the newly constructed bypass located on the south side of State Route 178. The speed limit through the bypass is 40 mph. 

 

Motorists traveling on State Route 178 are advised that the inside westbound lane in the vicinity of Canteria Drive has been closed to facilitate construction of the westbound traffic connection to the bypass.

 

Westside Parkway Phase 6C

April 11-18, 2014

The contractor for the Westside Parkway has placed concrete for the stems and soffit on the east half of the Renfro Bridge and is working to relocate a high pressure gas line. Once the gas line has been relocated, the contractor will begin excavation for the west half of the bridge. Motorists can detour around the closure via Allen Road and Brimhall Road.
