Truck lanes on the 58 discussed

Tehachapi City Council Update


September 29, 2018


In the final minutes of the Sept. 17 City Council meeting, Councilman Phil Smith mentioned that, after his many years on the Kern Council of Governments (Kern COG) and his appeals to Caltrans for truck climbing lanes on Hwy 58 between General Beale Rd. and Tehachapi, there recently has been movement from Caltrans.

Not just movement. Smith additionally reported that Caltrans District 9 Director Brent Green and his senior staff met with City of Tehachapi officials on Thursday, Sept. 20. City officials also met with KernCOG Executive Director Ahron Hakimi and his staff later in the day.

"We will be getting regular updates on the project study report which should be completed some time next year," said Smith.

Way to go, Councilman Smith.
