City gets funding for bike, street projects


A cyclist makes his way along the bike path near Allen Road as the water in the Kern River reflects the blue sky.

The City of Bakersfield has received some new funding to make bike- and pedestrian-related improvements.

The city was awarded nearly $200,000 by the Kern Council of Governments to help pay for the Build-a-Bike program, downtown bike parking spots, a bike path between the Kern River bike path and 21st Street, rehabilitation of the Kern River bike path from Manor Street to Alfred Harrell Highway and improvements on portions of Brundage Lane.
