The City of Bakersfield will begin work on the reconstruction of the Truxtun Avenue and A Street intersection on Saturday, November 14. This work will require traffic detours and lane closures from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
During the first phase of reconstruction, traffic heading south on A Street will be detoured at 17th Street, northbound traffic will be detoured at 16th Street.
During the second phase of the project, the intersection of Truxtun Avenue and A Street will be reduced to right turns only.
These changes are expected to result in traffic delays. Drivers are advised to use caution and allow extra travel time while driving in the area, or to use alternate routes.
The intersection is expected to be open to traffic in all directions by 7 p.m. Saturday, November 14.
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.
