Commuter Alert – Heavy Delays For Hwy 58 Friday Morning

By Nikki Garrett Metzger

(Victor Valley)–– If you are planning to head out of town this Friday using Hwy 58, or if that is your normal route of travel, you will need to allow for LOTS of extra time this week because of a planned lane closure for that highway.

Hwy 58 just east of the 395, from Hidden River Road to Valley Wells Road, will have lanes closed from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. for a legal investigation.  Traffic will get around this closure by following a pilot car or by using one lane of travel at a time with workers flagging traffic through.

Terri Kasinga with CalTrans said the closure is for a legal investigation – crews will reconstruct an accident scene to assist in an investigation.

This area is heavily traveled, especially by trucks and weekend travelers.  CalTrans estimates delays could be anywhere from 10-25 minutes, and suggests using an alternate route.
