Nighttime Closure Planned on Hwy 99

A full closure has been scheduled for northbound State Route 99 in the vicinity of the State Route 58 junction on Monday, June 22. All northbound lanes will be closed in this area between 11 p.m. and 5 a.m. The closure may be in place during the same hours on Tuesday, June 23, if necessary, to remove remaining equipment.

While work is underway, northbound traffic will be detoured onto eastbound State Route 58 to Union Avenue then return westbound to State Route 99. The closure is needed for a concrete pour on the widened westbound State Route 58 bridge.

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.
