Ming Ave Median Modification Project to Start Aug. 17

Two lanes expected to be closed

On Aug. 17, 2020, the City of Bakersfield will begin a project to modify the medians to create dual left turn lanes at the Ming Avenue and Stine Road intersection.

During the median modification, the eastbound and westbound No. 1 lanes (the left-most lanes) and turn pockets on Ming Avenue will be closed at the Stine Road intersection. However, two through lanes on Ming Avenue, and all lanes on Stine Road, will be open. Traffic delays are expected during this project, so drivers are advised to use caution and to take alternate routes or allow extra travel time through this area.

The work impacting traffic on this project is scheduled to be complete by late September 2020.

Please note: Construction work may be postponed and rescheduled without notice due to inclement weather or other unforeseen conditions. The City thanks the public for their patience during the construction of these improvements.
