Nighttime Ming Avenue On-ramp Closure Planned

Closure expected to last Tuesday, March 3 through Thursday, March 5

The contractor for the Belle Terrace Operational Improvements project will need to close the Ming Avenue on-ramp to northbound State Route 99 during nighttime hours Tuesday, March 3 through Thursday, March 5. The on-ramp is expected to be closed between the hours of 9 p.m. and 5 a.m., each night. During these hours, northbound motorists can enter the freeway from the Wible Road on-ramp, located approximately one mile north of Ming Avenue.

Intermittent traffic control is also expected to continue on Wible Road, between Stockdale Highway and Belle Terrace, through mid-March as the contractor completes drainage work in this area. Flagging personnel may need to stop traffic for up to five minutes at a time between the hours of 7 a.m. and 4 p.m. Motorists are encouraged to use alternate routes or allow sufficient time to reach their destinations if they must travel through this area during work hours.

Work may be rescheduled without notice due to unforeseen circumstances. Please slow down and watch for construction workers and equipment while driving in the vicinity of this work. The Thomas Roads Improvement Program apologizes for any inconvenience this work may cause the traveling public.
