BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) — Most lanes along a section of Truxtun Avenue will be shut down during nights through the end of February for roadwork.

The stretch from Commercial Way to Highway 99 will be impacted from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. each day for Westside Parkway construction, according to the Thomas Roads Improvement Program.

One lane should remain open in each direction.

Westside Parkway is a new east-west freeway extending from Truxtun Avenue to Heath Road. The Truxtun Tie-in will complete the east end of the new freeway between Mohawk Street and Truxtun Avenue.

The freeway should open to traffic sometime this year.
