Final Striping Operations to Begin on 24th Street

Final striping operations for the 24th Street corridor are scheduled to begin on Sunday night, September 13. Work will be performed Sunday through Thursday nights between the hours of 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. The contractor will also install traffic detection loops during these hours.

This work will require alternating lane closures on 23rd Street and 24th Street between the Kern River Bridge and the State Route 178 freeway. At least one lane will remain open to traffic in each direction while work is underway. Final striping is expected to take approximately three weeks to complete though the majority of the work will be completed during a four-day period.

Alternating lane closures continue during daytime hours between Oak Street and B Street/Bay Street for streetscaping. These lane closures may be in effect weekdays between 8:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. through the end of September. At least one lane will remain open in each direction.

Motorists are encouraged to avoid these work areas or allow extra time to reach their destinations if they must travel through the corridor during these time periods.

This schedule may be changed without notice due to unforeseen circumstances. Please slow down and watch for construction workers and equipment while driving through the work zone. The Thomas Roads Improvement Program apologizes for any inconvenience this work may cause the traveling public.
