BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) – The Belle Terrace overpass is closed until spring 2020, according to the Thomas Roads Improvement Program.
The closure of this road that crosses over Highway 99 is part of the Centennial Corridor project.
The Centennial Corridor project will connect Highway 58 to the Westside Parkway, opening up east-west freeway travel in Bakersfield.
The Belle Terrace overpass is 55 years old and shorter than the current standard. It will also need to be widened to accommodate additional lanes beneath it when Hwy. 99 is widened.
The northbound Hwy. 99 exit to Wible Road/Stockdale Highway is also slated to close Nov. 14 for good.
