State Route 58 Gap Closure


 

 

Project Description:
The State Route 58 Gap Closure project will add a third lane in each direction to a three-mile stretch of the freeway between State Route 99 and Cottonwood Road. The additional lanes will be constructed within the median. The project will also widen the "P" Street Bridge, Madison Street Bridge, Cottonwoood Road Bridge and the Bakersfield Corral Railroad Overhead to accommodate the additional lanes.

This project will improve safety, relieve congestion, reduce travel times and provide motorists with a continuous seven-mile, three-lane freeway from State Route 99 to State Route 184 (Weedpatch 184).

 

Project Status:
The City awarded a construction contract for the State Route 58 Gap Closure project in August 2013.  Construction is underway. Completion is anticipated for late 2014.
