Caltrans will be shutting down one lane of southbound Highway 99 between Highway 58 and Ming Avenue Sunday for maintenance. 

The southbound Highway 99 connector from Real Rd. will also be closed. 

The closures will be in place starting at 5:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Crews will be working on landscape maintenance and drainage clean-up.

Closures may continue for longer periods of time if necessary, due to delays caused by weather or uncontrollable events that may occur during construction procedures.
