Extensive road work will continue at the intersection of Truxtun Avenue and Oak Street in Bakersfield.
The contractor says Monday through Friday starting July 30, through lanes and turning lanes will need to be closed to build a new median and for other work from 9 a.m to 3:30 p.m. each day. Work on July 30 is scheduled to wrap up at 3 p.m., however.
Monday’s closure will cause more traffic in the area as traffic will be down to just one lane in each direction for survey work.
Overnight work is coming as well for sidewalk construction scheduled Wednesday Aug. 1 and Thursday, Aug. 2 from 7 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. the next day.
Expect delays, and be patient, if you’re driving in the area.
