$1.4 Billion In School Construction Is Coming Down The Pike, But Will The Work Go To Locals?

It just received more than $1 billion in school construction bonds, is undertaking $630 million in road improvement projects, and will be supplying a workforce for the looming construction of the multi-billion dollar high-speed rail project that is planned to cut through the county. All of this takes place as residential development continues throughout Bakersfield.
