Work Begins On Mobility, Safety Improvements To Highway 395

San Bernardino, CA – SBCTA: Construction has begun on nearly $60 million in mobility and safety improvements to U.S. Highway 395, part of a series of efforts between the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), the San Bernardino County Transportation Authority and the California Highway Patrol to address this critical High Desert corridor.

C.A. Rasmussen Inc. of Valencia was awarded the construction contract for the project’s current phase, from State Route 18 in Victorville to Chamberlaine Way in Adelanto. Improvements include widening of the highway, the updating of turn pockets and signals at key intersections. Subsequent phases are being considered for additional improvements from Interstate 15 to SR 18 and Chamberlaine Way to Desert Flower Road.

Highway 395 is a mostly two-lane corridor that is part of the state highway network, owned and operated by Caltrans. The highway serves as a major corridor for goods movement, commuters, recreational motorists and local circulation.

Funding for the project comes from a variety of sources, including $18 million from Measure I, the voter-approved half-cent sales tax measure for San Bernardino County.

Yesterday was the groundbreaking ceremony for the U.S. Highway 395 widening project. Construction crews will soon begin work widening a five-mile stretch of Highway 395 that links Victorville to Adelanto. The roadway will be widened from two lanes to four, starting at the intersection of Palmdale Road and Highway 395, and ending north at Chamberlaine Way
