24th Street Improvement Project
The proposed project in general would widen, realign and restripe 24th Street from west of State Route 99 to east of M Street, as well as realign and restripe 23rd Street from west of C Street to east of M Street, in order to add two travel lanes (one in each direction) to the roadway. The project would also encompass improvements to the 24th Street/State Route 99 interchange and to the northbound State Route 99 auxiliary lane, as well as the widening of the Oak Street/24th Street intersection.
On February 12, 2014, the Bakersfield City Council adopted a resolution certifying the Final Environmental Impact Report for the 24th Street Improvement Project and approved advancing the project to the final design and property acquisition phases. Various field activities, such as surveying, will occur during the design phase. It's anticipated the project will be ready to advertise for construction in mid-2015.
