Hwy 58 on-ramp closed to 2 week for roads project

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) — The Chester Avenue/H Street westbound on-ramp to Highway 58 will be under a full, around-the-clock closure for two weeks beginning Tuesday.

Thomas Roads Improvement Program said the closure is needed for modifications to an adjacent pump station in conjunction with the State Route 58 Gap Closure Project.

During the closure, drivers can use the Hwy. 58/Union Avenue interchange, about 1 mile to the east, or continue west on Brundage Lane for about a mile to access northbound or southbound Highway 99.
