Nighttime Lane Closures Planned on Hwy 204

One lane each direction will be open between F St. and Hwy 99

The Department of Transportation (Caltrans) announces night-time lane closures on State Route 204 next week in the City of Bakersfield for roadway paving operations.

The following closures will be in effect, weather permitting:

  • State Route 204 will be reduced to one lane in both directions between F Street and State Route 99 starting Sunday, June 28, until Tuesday, June 30, from 8:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. each night.

Reckless or inattentive drivers traveling through Work Zone Areas have caused the majority of Work Zone Deaths.  Caltrans wants to remind drivers to stay attentive and undistracted while driving and to be cognizant of workers and vehicles in Construction and Maintenance Areas and slow down while driving through Work Zones. 

Caltrans would like to thank residents and commuters for their patience during this project and remember to please “Slow for the Cone Zone.”
