The proposed project is an amendment to an adopted Specific Plan Line for a new east-west freeway extending from Heath Road to a location near SR 99, a distance of approximately 8.1 miles in the City of Bakersfield and unincorporated Kern County. The project includes the extension of Mohawk Street south from Rosedale Highway, across the Kern River to Truxton Avenue. Interchanges are proposed at Allen Road, Calloway Drive, Coffee Road, and Mohawk Street. Two options are being considered for the eastern terminus of the project; the Truxton Option which connects directly into Truxton Avenue west of SR 99 and the Oak Option which connects to Oak Street east of SR 99. Sufficient right of way is being acquired for the Westside Parkway to accommodate an ultimate eight-lane facility; however, at this time traffic projections warrant four lanes from Heath Road to Allen Road, six lanes from Allen Road to Coffee Road, eight lanes from Coffee Road to Mohawk Street and six lanes from Mohawk Street to the eastern terminus. The project requires an amendment to the Specific Plan Line adopted previously for the project known as the Kern River Freeway, which this project replaces.
