Hwy 99 Ramp Closure on Sunday

The Department of Transportation (Caltrans), in cooperation with Brosamer & Wall Inc., announces a long-term ramp closure on Northbound State Route 99 starting the night of Sunday, January 12, in the City of Bakersfield as part of the Bakersfield 99 Rehab Project. 

The following changes will occur, weather permitting:

  • The Northbound State Route 99 loop on-ramp from Eastbound California Avenue will close for 25 days starting the night of Sunday, January 12.
    • This closure will not affect the Northbound State Route 99 on-ramp from Westbound California Avenue.

Commuters are encouraged to follow Caltrans District 6 on social media for the most up-to-date information regarding closures for this project.

Caltrans wants to remind drivers to stay attentive and undistracted while driving and to be cognizant of workers and vehicles in Construction and Maintenance Areas and slow down while driving through Work Zones.

Caltrans would like to thank residents and commuters for their patience during this project and remember to please “Slow for the Cone Zone.”
