Detour available, will cause some minor delays

The Kern County Roads Department announced Friday that the west end of Stockdale Highway will be closed between Highway 43 (Enos Lane) and Superior Road beginning Saturday at 5:30 a.m. through Monday to accommodate construction work on the San Joaquin Railroad Crossing.

A detour will reroute traffic on Highway 43, Brimhall Road and Superior Road.

Motorists are advised that while the detour is in effect, travel though this area will be slower than normal and minor delays should be expected.
