Crews already cleaning trash off the Westside Parkway
Last Updated: 109 days ago
BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - The Westside Parkway has been open for just over two weeks now and there have already been several reports of trash on the side of the road.
Today a six-man crew from the Bakersfield Homeless Shelter headed out to the parkway to clean up as much trash and debris as possible.
The clean-up effort was made possible by a partnership between the City of Bakersfield, the Department of Transportation, Keep Bakersfield Beautiful and other organizations.
The goal is to clean up our highways and get our homeless population back into the workforce.
