Highways 180, 99 connector lanes to be closed Saturday

The eastbound and westbound highway 180 connector lanes to Highway 99 in Fresno will temporarily close on Saturday, the California Department of Transportation said. The closure will also include the right lane of southbound Highway 99 between Highway 180 and Fresno Street.

Maintenance crews are scheduled to complete pavement repair between 4 a.m. and 10 a.m., Caltrans said.

Closures could continue for longer periods, due to weather or uncontrollable events, Caltrans said. Drivers are advised to avoid this area during project hours.
