Bakersfield City Council OKs crosswalk as part of 24th Street widening project
BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) —
The Bakersfield City Council on Wednesday night approved adding a crosswalk as part of the 24th Street widening project.
The pedestrian crossing will go in at Pine Street.
In October, the city decided to remove crosswalks at Drake and A streets as part of the project.
Some residents have been vocal in their desire to have a place to walk across 24th Street. Meanwhile, officials with the Public Works Department have expressed concern that 24th is too busy and too dangerous for pedestrian crossings.
