UPDATED: Freeway Lane and Ramp Closures Scheduled

Nighttime closures on Highway 99 start Sunday

The schedule has been updated for nighttime lane closures on State Route 99 between State Route 58 and Ming Avenue. The contractor will be paving a new auxiliary lane for northbound-to-eastbound traffic on Sunday, September 13 and Wednesday, September 16. (Work was previously scheduled for Thursday night.)

The paving operations require the closure of the two outside northbound lanes between the hours of 9 p.m. and 5 a.m., each night. One northbound lane and the northbound State Route 99-to-eastbound State Route 58 connector will remain open to traffic while paving operations are underway.

Construction schedules 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.
