Central Bakersfield infrastructure project

NewsOur Bakersfield District will start an infrastructure improvement project to strengthen water system reliability and fire protection in central Bakersfield on September 5.

Installation will take place on:

  • Brundage Lane, from N Street to 2nd Street
  • 2nd Street, from N Street to 4th Street
  • 4th Street, from N Street to Chester Place
  • Chester Place, from N Street to 8th Street

The work will be performed Monday through Friday between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m. and is expected to be completed in five months.
