Nighttime Closures Scheduled for Freeway Ramp

Daytime closure on Ford Avenue also planned

Nighttime closures have been scheduled for the westbound State Route 58-to-southbound State Route 99 connector ramp on Sunday, September 27 and Monday, September 28. The closures are expected to be in place between 11 p.m. and 5 a.m. while the contractor places concrete to tie-in the newly widened separation bridge. Westbound-to-southbound motorists can use Union Avenue to connect with southbound State Route 99.

Closures are scheduled on Wednesday, September 30 and Thursday, October 1 for the two outside lanes on northbound State Route 99 between State Route 58 and Ming Avenue. The northbound State Route 99-to-eastbound State Route 58 connector ramp will also be closed between 11 p.m. and 5 a.m. One northbound lane will remain open for through traffic. Northbound-to-eastbound motorists will exit at Ming Avenue and connect with State Route 58 via Union Avenue.

Ford Avenue will be closed between Dunlap Street and North Stine Road during daytime hours on Monday, September 28. The closure is needed to release falsework from the new bridge crossing over the roadway. If necessary, this section of Ford Avenue will remain closed Monday night and Tuesday. Motorists can detour around the work zone by using Joseph Drive/McDonald Way.

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.
