More than 199 homes, 36 businesses along proposed route for Bakersfield Centennial Corridor Project

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Bakersfield's newest 'dead-end' freeway is on the road to completion, but it's not great news for dozens of homes and businesses.

Last year, CalTrans recommended 'Alternative B' for the Centennial Corridor, which would link the Westside Parkway to Highway 58.

But the Californian is reporting acquisition of more than 200 properties that lie in the freeway's path will not begin until fall of this year at the earliest.

CalTrans said it chose Plan B because it avoids a historic neighborhood and Saunders Park.
