E Street in San Bernardino Getting New Look

E Street has a new look in Downtown San Bernardino as crews continue making roadway improvements for the sbX line. New plants and trees will also be placed in the median area.

Motorists driving through Downtown San Bernardino can now see the new street configuration for sbX service. During a two-week period in July, a small section of northbound E Street between 2nd Street and Court Street was closed so construction crews could work on widening the street and build a new center running median that will be fully landscaped. Crews will soon start construction of the Court Street sbX station. Important to note, is that while there is currently a new layer of pavement in this area, the final layer of asphalt will be placed in the coming months and create a smooth, even surface for vehicular traffic.

Extensive roadway and crosswalk work also took place between Court Street and 6th Street in Downtown. The final layer of asphalt in this area will also be placed in the coming months as well as new striping. Elsewhere on E Street, electrical and masonry work has been taking place at the Highland Avenue, Baseline Street, Rialto Avenue and North Mall Way sbX stations. Work also continues on the sbX stations on Kendall Drive and the CSUSB sbX station is nearing completion.
