You can help shape how more than $5.3 billion in anticipated transportation and energy-efficiency projects will be developed over the next 28 years. In November and December, Kern Council of Governments is hosting a series of 10 presentations and workshops to highlight a free, Web-based, interactive game to garner public input on these vital community issues. 

More than 70 major highway, road maintenance, public transit, rail, pedestrian and bicycle improvements are projected to be funded throughout Kern County over the next three decades. Kern COG’s Directions to 2050 Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) details how our region will spend federal, state and utility transportation dollars over the long term.

Directions to 2050 will contain an ambitious program of roadway corridor, public transit, rail, bicycle and pedestrian improvements designed to keep the regional economy moving over the next 28 years. Ideas and input garnered during presentations, workshops and through an online game at directionsto2050.com will inform which policies, programs, and projects will be prioritized and when they will be implemented over the next three decades.

Kern COG will demonstrate the “Help Improve Your Community” game during the following Directions to 2050 presentations beginning with Tehachapi on Tuesday, Nov. 13.
