Westside Parkway project closing driveway for lane expansion

Westside Parkway project closes access to business

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - "Yeah it might hurt a bit, we'll see what happens."

Moo Creamery co-owner Richard Yoshimura has kept his business open for four years, but with the busiest driveway to his business closing this Friday Yoshimura will be forced to find new routes to his customers.

"If we have to do more deliveries we want to do everything we can to make things convenient for our customers", Yoshimura explained.

The driveway access between Commercial Way and Empire Drive on Truxtun Avenue will permanently be closed for the Westside Parkway project on Friday.

The city told Yoshimura they will help promote his isolated business, but signs might not be enough to stop traffic.

"Sinage when you're driving pretty quick down Truxtun, it's a fast moving street it'll help a bit but if you pass Commercial Way you might miss our restaurant", Yoshimura said.
