They include, according to a Caltrans news release:

The Tehachapi CAPM Project: On Highway 58 near Tehachapi from the Tehachapi Creek Bridge to the Cache Creek Bridge, construction crews are grinding existing pavement and resurfacing the roadbed. Lane closures will happen Monday through Friday, 24 hours a day, slowing traffic.
