Crews to work on damaged Highway 99 overpass through Nov. 10

ATWATER (KFSN) -- Emergency repairs will continue this week in Atwater to fix the Applegate Road overcrossing on Highway 99.

The northbound lanes of Highway 99 opened at Applegate Road at 5 a.m. on Monday.

Closures will take place starting at 9 p.m. and go until 5 a.m. overnight through Nov. 10.

Drivers heading that direction will be able to take a detour at the Atwater Boulevard exit.

The emergency repairs come after the overcrossing was hit by a big rig more than two weeks ago.

After an inspection by Caltrans, the department determined the overpass was damaged and needed repairs.
