Marella Way in Southwest Bakersfield is anticipated to close for nine months due to excavation and construction of a new bridge, according to the Thomas Roads Improvement Project.

Drivers are asked to use La Mirada Drive near Centennial Park to cross the alignment while the bridge is under construction.

The Thomas Roads Improvement Project says construction schedules can change at any time without notice. Officials ask that everyone please anticipate delays and slow for the cone zone.
