Keene Pavement Project

Project Purpose

This 11.3-mile project, currently in the design stage, will upgrade existing pavement, guardrail, bridge rail, median barrier, drainage, and lighting, and realign curves in four locations on State Route 58 from Bealville Road to approximately two miles west of the junction with State Route 202 in Tehachapi. Additionally, the project could potentially include a wildlife crossing between Bealville Road and Hart Flat Road.
