Full Closure of Part of Northbound Hwy 99 Planned

A full closure has been scheduled for Tuesday, June 16 for northbound State Route 99 between the eastbound State Route 58 connector and Ming Avenue. All northbound lanes will be closed in this area between 11 p.m. and 5 a.m.

The two inside southbound lanes will be closed between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m., but one southbound lane will remain open while work on a new bridge column is underway. These closures may be in effect during the same hours tomorrow night, June 17, if necessary.

Northbound traffic will be detoured around the work zone via Union Avenue and State Route 58. Please slow down and pay attention to construction and detour signage while traveling through this area.

This schedule may be changed without notice due to unforeseen circumstances. The Thomas Roads Improvement Program apologizes for any inconvenience this work may cause the traveling public.
