Document Description
The City of Bakersfield is proposing to construct and maintain a 6-mile-long multi-use trail along the Friant-Kern Canal, from the Kern River Channel to 7th Standard Road. The trail would generally run in a north-south orientation. The trail would be used for alternative transportation and recreation as well as serve as interconnection to community parks, schools, centers, retail, and the Kern River Parkway. The trail would increase pedestrian and bicyclist safety, promote active modes of transportation, and reduce traffic congestion.
