MOJAVE – Caltrans is gearing up for a major roadway rehabilitation project set to begin this October. The Rosamond-Mojave Rehabilitation Project will add new pavement to nearly eight miles of State Route 14, across all four lanes, between Rosamond and Mojave in eastern Kern County. The project is expected to take up to two years to complete and will provide a service life of 40 or more years. During construction, motorists can expect lane closures in both directions with northbound and southbound traffic limited to just one lane. There will also be on-ramp and off-ramp closures with necessary detours. Expect lane closures and detours to remain in place 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Before construction begins, Caltrans District 9 will be hosting a digital public meeting where members of the community can learn more about the project. The meeting will be held on October 6 at 6:00 pm, using Webex video services. Engineers, construction leads, and members of the public information office will be on hand during the meeting to answer questions. Anyone interested in attending can do so with the following information: • Webex Meeting Link: • Meeting #: 146 795 5145 • Password: QPdEd67Gha5 • Join by Phone: (408) 418-9388 • Phone Access Code: 146 795 5145 If you’d like to receive project updates directly from the Caltrans District 9 public information office, you can contact Michael Lingberg at and request he add your email to the community outreach list.
