Mojave Pavement

Project Information

Caltrans is proposing to rehabilitate approximately 21 lane miles of State Route 14 in eastern Kern County from 0.5 miles north of the Silver Queen Road overcrossing to 0.6 miles north of the intersection with Business Route 58 in the town of Mojave. The Mojave Pavement Project would also upgrade existing highway features including bridge rails, guard rails and culverts, and improve highway operations and pedestrian accessibility within Mojave. 

Details of the project include:

  • Rehabilitating, restoring and resurfacing the pavement to improve ride quality, extend the pavement service life and reduce maintenance costs
  • Applying Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)-compliant upgrades to existing curb ramps
  • Providing an ADA compliant pathway through the community by reconstructing existing sidewalks and driveways
  • Adding sidewalk to provide a pedestrian pathway across the at-grade railroad crossing  
  • Replacing the bridge railing on the railroad overcrossing bridges and performing a deck seal on the Oak Creek Road overcrossing.
  • Addition of skip rumble strips
  • Reconfiguration of the north and south intersections of Business Route 58
  • Addition of an acceleration lane at Purdy Avenue
  • Drainage improvements
  • Upgrading existing traffic signs 
  • Upgraded and colorized roadway striping
