Traffic Advisory State Route 99/Pelandale Avenue Interchange Reconstruction Project

Work Planned for July 21-July 25

Traffic controls and ongoing construction continue for the State Route 99 (SR-99) Pelandale Avenue Interchange Reconstruction Project.  In addition, construction includes driving piles for the new bridge which began on July 2 and will be continuing through July 21, this activity produces noise and ground vibration.

Drivers are asked to be mindful of the following traffic controls:

  • Eastbound traffic on Pelandale Avenue from Salida Boulevard to Sisk Road has one through lane with a left turn lane at both Northbound SR-99 on-ramp and Sisk Road intersections.
  • Westbound Pelandale Avenue has existing center through lane closed and traffic must merge left to access the left-turn lane or merge right to access one through/right-turn lane.

These configurations will remain in place for several months.  Motorists can expect to experience lengthy delays and are encouraged to utilize alternate routes when possible.
