Historical Tour of old US 99
Golden State Avenue – Kern River: Business SR-99 – Bakersfield
US 99 crossed the Kern River originally at a point about 1 mile east of the current crossing. These bridges were initially constructed in 1933 with three lanes and were widened to four lanes in 1954. The metal pipe railing is the same as the original 1933 railing.
