The previously scheduled vegetation removal along the Kern River Parkway Multi-Use path has been postponed.

The original weed removal was scheduled for Tuesday, October 17 but will now take place on Wednesday, October 25 due to unforeseen circumstances, the city said.

The multi-use path from Allen Road to Enos Lane will be temporarily closed to all users from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Oct. 25.

The Kern County Water Agency (KCWA) and City of Bakersfield will be removing vegetation that is encroaching onto the path. The removal is intended to improve travel for pedestrians and cyclists along the section of the path from Allen Road to Enos Lane. 

Path users are asked to avoid the area during the duration of the work.
