BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — Caltrans District 7 reports westbound 126 is no longer a good alternate due to the Saddleridge Fire.

Those who must travel south should take Highway 395 to Interstate 5 to avoid fire closures, and long distance cargo trucks should use Interstate 15 instead of I-5.

The other alternate route is Highway 166 to Highway 33 to Highway 101.

Caltrans also reports the following lane closures: Southbound 5 at Calgrove; northbound 5 at 118; northbound 14 at Newhall, westbound 210 at 118; westbound 118 from Balboa to DeSoto; northbound 405 at 118; eastbound 118 connector to westbound 210; eastbound 118 connector to northbound 405; northbound 405 connector to westbound 118; and northbound/southbound 5 connector to eastbound 118.
