BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - The city of Bakersfield will be removing the engraved bricks on the ground in front of Rabobank that have been there for more than 15 years.
The city says the majority of bricks and tiles have been in front of the arena since 1998 and many are now worn, broken or chipped.
Crews plan to replace the bricks and tiles with concrete and the construction will happen in August.
Many were placed there in memory of a loved one who passed away, and many local businesses also had bricks.
The city says they came to the decision to remove the bricks because of safety concerns.
There is still no word on if they plan to add engraved bricks somewhere else around Rabobank in the future.
If you paid for a brick you can get it back by contacting the Public Works Department after September 1. Their phone number is (661) 326-3111.
