FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


State Route 58 Rehabilitation Project

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) will begin a project on State Route 58 in Kern County. This project extends from Lone Oak Drive to Fruitvale Avenue (3.2 miles).

This project will rehabilitate a portion of an earlier project that experienced pavement cracking in winter of 2004. This new project will remove and replace the pavement from approximately Lone Oak Drive to Fruitvale Avenue with one foot of new asphalt concrete. This will rectify the current pavement conditions and extend the roadway life to 20 years. Truck traffic in this area is so significant that a longer pavement life is warranted. It is also important to note that last season’s heavy rainfall, along with the high truck traffic on this route contributed to pavement deterioration.

Once this part of the project is complete, a seal coat will follow from Allen Road to Camino Del Rio. Caltrans is confident that this strategy will improve the condition of the Rosedale Highway.

Work is anticipated to begin in August and complete before the winter season. Work will occur at night between the hours of 7 p.m. and 7 a.m. More detailed information will be provided as the project begins.

Caltrans would like to thank the residents and commuters for their patience during this improvement project. The public is reminded to drive with extra care while traveling through the orange “cone zone” areas. For additional information, please call (559) 488-4082 or (559) 444-2415.
