Additional Lane Closures Scheduled for Centennial Corridor Work

Lane closures have been scheduled for both California Avenue and Mohawk Street tonight, June 1.

On California Avenue, alternating lane closures will be needed between Marella Way and Easton Drive from 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. for restriping. The closures affect both directions of travel, but at least one lane will remain open to traffic. This work will narrow traffic lanes to allow for bridge construction.

Alternating lane closures will also be needed tonight on southbound Mohawk Street between the Westside Parkway and Truxtun Avenue. This work will result in a month-long closure of the outside southbound lane in this area for construction of a new Park & Ride facility.

Nighttime lane closures have also been scheduled for Wednesday, June 3 and Thursday, June 4 on northbound and southbound State Route 99 near Ming Avenue. The two inside lanes in both directions are expected to be closed between the hours of 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. to allow for the construction of median barrier. One lane will remain open to traffic while work is underway.

The following previously announced closures remain in effect: Tonight’s full closure of State Route 99 between Stockdale Highway and Ming Avenue, westbound State Route 58 to southbound State Route 99 loop ramp, and Wible Road from Brundage Lane and Belle Terrace. Closures will be in effect from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. On Tuesday night, Real Road between Stockdale Highway and Elcia Drive will be closed between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. to dismantle bridge falsework.

This schedule may be changed without notice due to unforeseen circumstances. Please slow down and pay attention to construction and detour signage while driving through these areas. The Thomas Roads Improvement Program apologizes for any inconvenience this work may cause the traveling public.
