Time to check your commute. Caltrans has announced the closure of two major northbound ramps in downtown Bakersfield.
The on-ramp to northbound Highway 99 from Buck Owens Boulevard will be closed for 55 days starting at 10 p.m. Monday, the agency said.
Additionally, the exit from northbound Highway 99 to Rosedale Highway/24th Street will close starting Sept. 3 for 55 days.
The closures are part of the ongoing Highway 99 rehab project. For this part of the project, crews will construct an extra lane at the Rosedale Highway/24th Street exit off-ramp.
Posted detours will utilize the Buck Owens Boulevard and California Avenue exits.
