Groundbreaking Held for the Westside Parkway

Groundbreaking was held today on the long-awaited Centennial Corridor projectThe project, which will allow a seemless connection between the Westside Parkway and the 58 and 99 Freeways. Dignitaries grabbed golden shovels and turned dirt to mark the beginning of the final stage of the project, which should take around 2 years to complete. Bakersfield City Manager Alan Tandy says the project will shave 30 minutes off what is a 45-minute drive.
