State Route 58 Closed Over Tehachapi Pass
TEHACHAPI – Due to inclement weather and multiple traffic incidents, Caltrans and the CHP have closed State Route 58 over Tehachapi Pass in eastern Kern County at approximately 1:30 am. The highway is closed in both directions from Towerline Road east of Bakersfield to Exit 172 near the town of Mojave.
Because visibility is limited and roads are slick, we ask that all drivers slow down and allow themselves plenty of time to reach their destinations safely. Caltrans also reminds drivers to move over for Caltrans crews, CHP, and other emergency vehicles. If you come across a snowplow on the highway, create enough space to keep yourself and our snowplow operators safe.
Before you leave home, check Quickmap.dot.ca.gov to get the latest on road conditions, including chain control restrictions. You can also call the Road Condition Hotline at 1-800-427-ROAD (7623).
