The northbound Traver exit on Highway 99 will temporarily close due to the Goshen to Kingsburg 6-lane widening project in Fresno and Tulare counties, the California Department of Transportation said.
Caltrans said the Traver exit will close for about three weeks starting Jan. 27 and motorists are asked to use the Merritt Drive off ramp (Exit 106B), just north of this location as an alternative exit.
Local business at this exit will remain open during construction, Caltrans said.
Caltrans said the $77 million project will widen the existing four-lane freeway to six lanes from the community of Goshen in Tulare County to just north of the Tulare-Fresno county line near Kingsburg.
The public is asked to drive with extra care while traveling through the construction area, Caltrans said.
