The proposed Westside Parkway addresses the traffic problems and issues of the metropolitan Bakersfield area. The growing population of west Bakersfield and lack of east-west arterials in the area make Westside Parkway an important corridor connecting to the Bakersfield Central Business District. Westside Parkway starts as a four-lane divided roadway and expands into an eight-lane divided roadway. The right of way acquired allows it to be expanded ultimately to an eight-lane roadway. As a subconsultant, LIN Consulting is responsible for the design of traffic signals, signal interconnect, and the preparation of transportation management plans (TMP) for various construction segments of the project.
