1 - Pearblossom Highway from the California Aqueduct bridge to Valley Springs Road

Full closure of Pearblossom Hwy. from the California Aqueduct bridge to Valley Springs Road for roadway reconstruction work, starting June 12, 2020 and continuing through November 2020. The existing traffic control and lane closures set up on the south side of Pearblossom Hwy. from 45th St. East to 55th St. East will remain in place while work in that segment is completed.

While Pearblossom Hwy. is closed, passenger vehicles will be detoured to Avenue S at Sierra Hwy. and Fort Tejon Rd. Local access will be provided to residents in the construction area, as needed and as construction permits. Travelers/commuters are advised to expect delays and to take alternate routes where possible. Avenue R, Avenue S, Palmdale Blvd/SR-138, Avenue P, or Avenue M are alternate east/west routes through the City to consider.

Commercial trucks having a manufacturer’s gross vehicle weight of 10,000 pounds or more must stay on designated truck routes, such as Sierra Hwy., Palmdale Blvd ./ SR-138, 47th St. East / SR-138, and Fort Tejon Rd. / SR-138 (see Title 10 of the Palmdale Municipal Code). Avenue S and Avenue R are not designated truck routes. Trucks are permitted on non-truck routes when it is the shortest and most direct route to perform a pickup or delivery.
