About Thomas Roads Improvement Program

The Thomas Roads Improvement Program (TRIP) is a cooperative effort between the City of Bakersfield, County of Kern, Caltrans and the Kern Council of Governments. The program was named in honor of former Congressman William M. Thomas, who led the effort to secure $630 million for area road projects in the 2005 Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA: LU).

TRIP projects have been identified as necessary to relieve the stress on outdated infrastructure, caused by years of rapid growth in population, interregional travel, and freight movement. The projects will facilitate regional mobility, economic growth and development, as well as reduce travel time through major transportation corridors.

The TRIP office is staffed with personnel from the City, County, Caltrans and Parsons, the program management consultant.

Notice: In advance of construction for the Centennial Corridor project, sewer and utility relocations and the installation of new cul-de-sacs on various streets adjacent to the future transportation corridor will begin in late spring 2017. The City and Caltrans have scheduled three community meetings to provide residents with information regarding this work on local streets. Each meeting will focus on a separate segment of the corridor, but residents may attend the meeting that best fits their schedules. Maps and exhibits showing right-of-way and the locations of sewer and utility relocation work, sound walls, and new cul-de-sacs will be available, and  City and Caltrans staff will be on hand to answer questions regarding these topics.  The meetings will be held on the following dates and times.
