Freeway Closure Planned for the Westbound Hwy 58 to Southbound Hwy 99 Connector

Nighttime closures have been scheduled for the southbound State Route 99. All lanes will be closed from 9 p.m. until 5 a.m. on December 29. During this time the westbound State Route 58 to southbound State Route 99 will also be closed. The closure is for placing steel reinforcement of column on State Route 99 median. 

During these closures, westbound-to-southbound motorists will be detoured to northbound State Route 99 connector to exit at California and then enter on the southbound State Route 99 on-ramp. 

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.
