BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Bakersfield is expecting to get a little more driving room in the downtown area with a widening project that is expected to be discussed by the planning commission on Jan. 16.
The proposed project in general would widen, realign and re-stripe 24th Street from west of State Route 99 to east of M Street, as well as realign and restripe 23rd Street from west of C Street to east of M Street, in order to add two travel lanes (one in each direction) to the roadway.
The project would also encompass improvements to the 24th Street/State Route 99 interchange and to the northbound State Route 99 auxiliary lane, as well as the widening of the Oak Street/24th Street intersection. Alternative 1 - Widen to the North, has been chosen as the recommended preferred alternative for the project in the Final EIR. A detailed description of the project improvements is listed in the Final EIR.
