    BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) – Drivers on a portion of westbound Truxtun Avenue will face a detour Tuesday and Wednesday nights as crews work on the Kern River Bridge Improvements project.

    The Thomas Roads Improvement Program said the lane closures will be near the Westside Parkway on- and off-ramps, but the ramps will remain open.

    Both westbound lanes and the inside eastbound lane on Truxtun will be closed from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. both nights. Commercial Way will be accessible from eastbound Truxtun.

    All lanes are expected to reopen by the morning commute, according to TRIP.

    The Kern River Bridge Improvements project is the first phase of the Centennial Corridor project.
