City of Bakersfield Secures Early Release of $180 million in Federal Funding for Centennial Corridor and 24th Street Widening Projects


The City of Bakersfield can now purchase property in the path of the Centennial Corridor Project between the Westside Parkway and Highway 58.  Under the early acquisition federal program, the City of Bakersfield may purchase properties from homeowners willing to voluntarily sell their property.  Approval for early acquisition of the sites will be requested at the next City Council meeting on March 5th.

On the other hand, the City may begin eminent domain proceedings for the 24th Street Widening Project to acquire the 23 homes in the project’s path.  The EIR for the project was approved earlier this month.
