Why are three consecutive highway exits closed at the same time?

Dena wants to know why Caltrans closed the White Lane, Panama Lane, and Taft Highway exits and on ramps at the same time?
BAKERSFIELD, CA - Dena wants to know why Caltrans closed the White Lane, Panama Lane, and Taft Highway exits and on ramps at the same time? Why not do one at a time or two?

Jose Camarena with Caltrans asks for commuter patience. He says they take advantage of the spring and summer construction season and funding that is available.

They also have a policy of not allowing the closure of two consecutive interchanges at the same time, however the closure at Panama Lane is a city project.

We hope that answers your question Dena.
