Closures Planned for Lanes on Hwy 99

Intersection of Stockdale Hwy and Stine Road also to be closed

Maintenance activities will require nighttime lane closures along southbound State Route 99 on Monday, November 25 and Tuesday, November 26. The lane closures will affect the inside and outside lanes along the freeway between State Route 58 and Ming Avenue. The closures may be in place between the hours of 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. each night.

On December 2, the contractor for the Centennial Corridor project plans to close the south side of Stockdale Highway/Stine Road intersection. This will prevent traffic from entering and exiting South Stine Road at Stockdale Highway. Stine Road will be open on the north side of Stockdale Highway and no impacts are anticipated for traffic traveling east or west on Stockdale Highway at this time.

The contractor plans to begin preparatory work for the Centennial Corridor bridge that will cross Stockdale Highway. This is a long-term closure and is expected to remain in effect through the duration of the project in late 2022. Area residents can access the neighborhood from Stockdale Highway at neighboring streets or from the south at Belle Terrace.

This schedule may be changed without notice. Please slow down and pay attention to construction and detour signage while driving through the area. The Thomas Roads Improvement Program apologizes for any inconvenience this work may cause the traveling public.
