Providing Easy Access, Reducing Traffic Delays

San Bernardino County added 18,400 residents in 2019, the 16th largest gain among the 100 largest U.S. counties. It is now the 14th most-populated county in the nation. As more people move to the Inland area, San Bernardino County roads and highways projects must keep pace. Hundreds of millions of local, state, and federal dollars have been invested in repairs, improvements and other upgrades.

Infrastructure projects made possible through SB 1 funds include:

  • Yucaipa Boulevard Improvements, 15th Street to I-10 Freeway
  • Hesperia Annual Street Improvement Project
  • Slurry Seal of approximately 20 streets in Grand Terrace

The $26.1 million I-10 Pavement Rehabilitation Project in Redlands, required miles of concrete replacement to improve operational efficiency and ride quality through heavily-travelled areas. Improvements to University Street at the I-10 Interchange between Citrus Avenue and Central Avenue widens ramps, adds turning lanes, traffic signals and operational improvements. Adding a truck-climbing lane from west of the 16th Street Bridge in Yucaipa to just east of the County Line Road Bridge improves commuter safety by allowing slow moving trucks climbing the steep grade to move out of general traffic.

With more than 2,500 miles of roads and 300 bridges in the county, San Bernardino County roads and bridges projects help infrastructure meet the demands of today’s increased traffic as well as current seismic and safety standards.

“US Route 395 is one of the main north/south highways in southern California providing access to and linking economic centers, recreational areas, and urban and rural regions,” according to the San Bernardino County Transportation Authority.  Widening Highway 395 through Adelanto focuses on making a dangerous stretch of roadway safer, as well as improving travel times and relieving congestion along the corridor.

The scope of the project goes beyond simply adding lanes. It also includes:

  • A new traffic signal at Seneca Road, leaving a dedicated turning lane for northbound traffic to turn left.
  • Additional traffic signals at Mojave Drive to allow for two through lanes in  each direction.
  • Reconfiguration of Holly Road to only allow motorists to turn right from Holly Road on to US 395.
  • Modification of Ranch Road to include ADA requirements, along with adding pedestrian signals.
  • Widening Air Base Road to two lanes in each direction and adding ADA  improvements and new signal polls.

The I-215 University Parkway project is another infrastructure project that aims to reduce delays and improve freeway access. Construction reconfigures the existing interchange at that location to address congestion and heavy traffic to and from the California State University at San Bernardino campus.
