The City of Bakersfield will start a roadway reconstruction project on Truxtun Avenue between Elm Street and Chester Avenue starting Monday, October 5.
The reconstruction of the roadway will be done between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday each week. The project is expected to be completed by Thursday, December 17.
Traffic delays are expected during the project and drivers are advised to drive with caution in the area and plan for longer travel times, or to use alternate routes to avoid the construction area. Temporary closures at intersections are expected and detours and alternative routes will be provided during these phases of construction.
All work on this project is scheduled to be completed by mid-December.
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 its patience during the completion of these improvements.
