Construction Bids Sought for I-10/University Street Interchange
The SBCTA Board of Directors approved the release of an Invitation for Bids for the construction of improvements to the Interstate 10/University Street interchange. The project will widen the interchange westbound on-ramp and eastbound off-ramp and restripe University Street to add turn lanes from Citrus Avenue to Central Avenue to improve traffic operations and reduce congestion.

The Project includes adding ramp metering on the westbound on-ramp, signalizing the I-10 ramp intersections, modifying the existing signal at the University Street and Citrus Avenue intersection, and constructing a retaining wall at the eastbound off-ramp. This project is funded utilizing Measure I and City of Redlands funds.

This interchange serves the east end of the city of Redlands, providing access to the University of Redlands, Redlands High School, and a large residential community.
As discussions of enhanced rail service continue throughout the Inland Empire, the SBCTA Board of Directors received a presentation on the Coachella Valley – San Gorgonio Pass Rail Corridor Service Study.

Montclair Mayor and SBCTA Board Member John Dutrey hosted the opening of the new Monte Vista Avenue Bridge over the Union Pacific Railroad on September 23rd.

The SBCTA Board of Directors announced they would be conducting a Visioning Workshop on November 12th, 2019 for all board members. The purpose of the workshop is to review and update the organization’s mission statement. The SBCTA mission statement outlines the agency guiding goals and principles. The current mission statement was adopted on June 2, 1993 and reaffirmed on March 6, 1996. Thus, the current mission statement has not been updated in over 23 years. SBCTA has gone through many major changes in the last two decades, most recently restructuring the organization through state legislation to consolidate the county transportation responsibilities with the San Bernardino Associated Governments under a unified San Bernardino County Transportation Authority (SBCTA).
