OILDALE, Calif. - Two major construction projects happening in Oildale are in the final stages of completion.
In December, Omni Family Health broke ground on their new state-of-the-art facility that will feature 22 exam rooms, a walk-in urgent care, an onsite pharmacy and mental health services.
In February, Walmart began construction of their Neighborhood Market, which will include a wide variety of products, including fresh produce, meats and dairy products, frozen foods, dry goods, deli foods, bakery items, household supplies, health and wellness products, and a pharmacy.
Both projects, on either end of N. Chester Avenue are said to revitalize and change the face of Oildale.
"We haven't seen any major development in this area in decades,"said Juanita Bradshaw, business owner.
Bradshaw's business, Fashion Plus Size, is located right next to Omni Family Health.
She has happily dealt with the construction next to her business that has impacted her parking and sidewalk.
"It's definitely worth all the impact, all the nuisance, because I know it's going to be a positive for the community," said Bradshaw.
The completion date is expected in late 2014. The price tag is $4.65 million and is funded by the Health Resource Services Administration.
The new 41,000 square foot Walmart Neighborhood Market located on Day Avenue at N. Chester Avenue is scheduled to open October 1.
