The freeway's path would then turn northwest, crossing both&nbsp;Stockdale Highway and Truxtun, in order to connect with the Westside Parkway near Mohawk Street.</p> Fri, 16 Nov 2012 03:04:50 +0000 Joe Moore 6945 at http://kvpr.org Caltrans Picks Preferred Route For Centennial Corridor Freeway in Bakersfield
