Kern River Parkway Bike Trail Western Extension
Document Type
MND - Mitigated Negative Declaration

Document Description
Kern county public works department proposes to construct approx 7 miles of a bike path from the existing Kern River Parkway Trail to the Buena Vista Recreation Area in Kern county, CA. Construction would generally include up to 19 ft of asphalt concrete bike path and up to 4 ft of shoulder and backing on each side. Additional project components may include culverts, headwalls, fencing, AC dikes, signage, and striping. Construction is anticipated to begin in 2019 and take approx 180 days to complete, excluding weekends. Construction may require temporary lane closures. However, the proposed project would not increase traff congestion in the rural project area. In addition, construction activities would be limited to short segments of public roads at one time to minimize long-term traffic disruption. The proposed project also includes encroachment permits from both the city of Bakersfield and Caltrans, stream bed alteration agreements, and a minor amendment to the Kern Water Bank Habitat Conservation Plan to include the proposed bike path alignment.
