In May, the CSUSB sbX station received a landscaping makeover, complete with dozens of evergreen and flowering plants as well as decorative rocks large and small. As part of this work, a water-efficient irrigation system was installed. The steel canopy frame was painted and lighting work continues on the station platform.
On Kendall Drive, work continues on the sbX stations at Palm Avenue, Little Mountain Drive and Shandin Hills Drive. Activities include the installation of decorative platform pavers, electrical lighting and structural-steel painting. Similar work also took place on E Street at the Marshall Boulevard, Highland Avenue and Baseline Street stations.
In Downtown San Bernardino, on E Street in the area between 2nd and 6th streets, work is in full swing to widen the east side of the street. Curbs, gutters and sidewalks have been removed and will be replaced. Diagonal parking has been permanently removed in the area. People can easily park in one of the free structures or lots at City Hall and Carousel Mall. Street parking is available on Court and 4th streets between E and D Streets.
The sbX BRT Project is the first-of-its kind express service to be constructed in the Inland Empire. It is the beginning of an intermodal public transit system in the San Bernardino Valley that will help reduce vehicle congestion while providing the public an environmentally friendly alternative that is sophisticated, cost effective, and time efficient.
The 15.7-mile corridor spans between northern San Bernardino and Loma Linda. It will include 16 art-inspired stations at key university, government, business, entertainment and medical centers as well as four park-and-ride facilities.
