BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Northbound Hwy 99 is now open after coming to a crawl this morning after a gravel spill across the lanes near California Avenue. Traffic started flowing freely again about 6:45 a.m. but it took a while for cars to get through the jam.
The California Highway Patrol reports the spill happened about 4:30 a.m. on Wednesday morning, closing the right two lanes. Several cars spun out in the gravel, causing an even bigger headache.
As of 6 a.m. traffic in the northbound lanes was backed up all the way to Ming Avenue. Traffic on Highway 58 was also backing way up as cars try to get on the Northbound 99 on-ramp. The westbound lanes of Hwy 58 were backed up all the way to Union Avenue.
