BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Construction will continue on Highway 58 this week, and crews will have the Chester Avenue/H Street westbound on-ramp to Highway 58 closed during nighttime hours.
The ramp closure will be in effect between the hours of 7 p.m. and 6 a.m. on the following dates: Thursday, March 20, 2014, Sunday through Thursday, March 23-27, and March 30 – April 3.
The ramp will be open to traffic during daytime hours.
During this period, motorists wanting to access westbound Highway 58 to connect with northbound or southbound Highway 99 will need to enter the freeway via the Highway 58/Union Avenue Interchange, located about one mile to the east.
Alternately, motorists can continue west on Brundage Lane for approximately one mile to access northbound or southbound Highway 99.
The full closure is necessary to allow the contractor for the State Route 58 Gap Closure Project to install shoring to construct a pump station in this area.
