That makes 3 street projects in progress in Taft

Another street project is going to start next month after the Taft City Council gave the go-ahead earlier this month to a $228,000 rehab project for a section of Sixth Street where Rails to Trails crosses.

The City is going to add just over $45,000 of general fund money to $183,000 of federal money to resurface Sixth between Main and Supply Row.
Cen-Cal Construction was awarded the bid for the project as the lowest responsible bidder.

City Manager Craig Jones said the work involves grinding down the existing roadway and replacing the surface.
Work is scheduled to start on Nov. 27 and construction will take 20 days, according to a city staff report.

Most of the funding is federal money that comes down from Caltrans and is administered by Kern COG through the federal Regional Surface Transportation Program.

This is the third major road project starting n Taft.

A Street is being resurfaced from Arroyo Way to Tenth Street by Kern County, and the City is doing a similar project on Church Street.

The Church Street Project is scheduled to get underway on Nov. 27.
