Multiple lanes will be blocked for a week

Motorists can expect some lane closures and inconvenience on Tenth Street near Kern Street for the rest of the week.

The center turn lane and one lane each of northbound and southbound traffic are closed from Center to Kern and one lane of southbound traffic is closed on the north side of Tenth.

The closures are due to sewer line repairs, City Manager Craig Jones said.

However, unlike the major work undertaken earlier this year on Tenth Street between San Emidio and Irene by the Kern Sanitation Authority, this construction is to repair a private lateral connecting to the main, Jones said.

The project is expected to take about a week, he said.
