KINGS COUNTY — The California High-Speed Rail Authority, in cooperation with design-build contractor Dragados-Flatiron Joint Venture, announced intermittent lane closures in Kings County to last to the end of the year.

The first closure is located south of Hanford at Kansas Avenue, between 9th and 10th avenues (state Route 43), for utility relocation.

Work began Friday and is scheduled to continue through Dec. 27. 

The second utility relocation closure is also located south of Hanford at Kent Avenue, between 9th Avenue and state Route 43.

This work is scheduled to begin Monday and continue through Oct. 4

Both closures will be intermittent between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Saturday.

Signage and flaggers will be in place to direct traffic and traffic laws will be fully enforced. The rail authority asks that commuters be aware of surrounding activity, remain alert and watch for construction vehicles and personnel.

The public is also asked to drive carefully and be extra cautious while traveling through construction areas.

This work is part of Construction Package 2-3, the 65-mile stretch of high-speed rail between East American Avenue in Fresno County and one-mile north of the Tulare-Kern County line.

This schedule is subject to change. For up-to-date information, visit BuildHSR.com or the Caltrans Quickmap.
