BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — Parts of Stockdale Highway are scheduled to be closed on Nov. 11 and 12 due to pavement rehabilitation projects.
According to city officials, on Saturday, Nov. 11 lanes of Stockdale Highway between Stine and Gosford roads will be closed throughout the day.
The closure is due to crews placing rubberized, hot asphalt in the area.
The intersection of Stockdale Highway and Stine Road is scheduled to be closed from 5 a.m. to 9 a.m.
After the intersection reopens construction will continue in two westbound lanes, only one lane will be open at this time.
City officials say the intersection at Ashe Road will be closed for about 2 and a half hours. But all eastbound traffic will remain open for property owners. Westbound traffic will be detoured during this time.
The area of Stockdale Highway between Ashe and Gosford roads is scheduled to be closed throughout the day on Sunday, Nov. 12, according to city officials.
The intersection of Stockdale Highway and Gosford Road is scheduled to be closed from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m.
After the intersection closure, traffic will be limited in the area, according to city officials.
City officials say during construction, detours will be posted and flaggers will be positioned at each closure.
Traffic delays are expected in the impacted areas.
Construction for the project is set to be fully completed by Dec. 4.
