Kern National Wildlife Refuge Auto Tour Route Improvements
The project is in Kern National Wildlife Refuge (NWR), which is 19 miles west of Delano, CA in Kern County. The project will improve the roadway by reconditioning the existing roadway and adding 4 to 6 inches of aggregate surface course on 10.5 miles of the Auto Tour Routes at Kern NWR. The intent of the project is to improve overall access to areas of the refuge for wildlife viewing and other activities. These improvements will be designed and implemented in accordance with U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, CFLHD, and AASHTO Highway Design Standards, in cooperation with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
