Coronavirus Concerns Introduce Virtual Meetings at SBCTA
Moments like this reveal things that unfortunately go relatively unnoticed during our 'normal' lives. As a 'critical sector' during this Covid-19 crisis, the transportation community is showing its true value throughout the country as we continue to provide essential transit options, deliver major infrastructure improvements, and develop the next generation of transportation platforms that keeps America moving forward.
Therefore, out of a sense of responsibility to each other, our friends and family, our neighbors, and our colleagues across the county, SBCTA is conducting all public meetings using the virtual tool, Zoom. 
Construction on US395 is Paving the Way to Final Stages of Work
US 395 is one of the main north/south highways in southern California that provides access and links economic centers, recreational areas, and urban and rural regions. For the past year, SBCTA has been working to widen US 395 from two lanes to four lanes and install turn lanes and signals at various intersections within the project limits – US 395 between SR 18 in Victorville and Chamberlaine Way in Adelanto. Once complete, this five-mile stretch of US 395, will realize enhanced safety, congestion relief, and improved travel times.
On February 26, SBCTA, Caltrans and the City of Highland broke ground on the SR 210/Lane Addition and Base Line Interchange project to help eliminate the existing bottleneck in the cities of Highland, Redlands, and San Bernardino. The project will add one mixed-flow lane in each direction between Highland Avenue and San Bernardino Avenue, auxiliary lanes (merge lanes) between Base Line and 5th Street, and an acceleration lane at the 5th Street eastbound ramp.  
New Committee Established to Address Legislative Issues
At the April Board of Directors meeting, SBCTA Board Members approved the establishment of a new Legislative Policy Committee. This committee will receive updates on federal and state legislation and polices that impact SBCTA’s ability to deliver and fund transportation projects in San Bernardino County. The establishment of the new committee was necessitated by recent state legislation would greatly impact SBCTA as an organization and its stewardship of Measure I tax dollars. SBCTA took an oppose position on the two state bills, Assembly Bill 2011 and Senate Bill 1390, and Board Members expressed a desire for more members to have the opportunity to weigh in proposed legislation in the future.
