Station Work Begins on Hospitality

New sod, trees and other types of plants have been put in on the south side of Hospitality Lane.

Construction progress on Hospitality Lane has become quite apparent during the past month as concrete driveways and sidewalks have re-opened and new landscaping has been planted along the south side of the street. In fact, on the west end of Hospitality Lane, traffic control has been lifted near E Street and the public can now see the new width of the street.

Additionally, new concrete bus pads have been poured at Omnitrans Route 2 stops along the south side of Hospitality Lane and slot asphalt paving is expected to begin at the end of April. The slot paving will allow traffic lanes to moved outward as construction crews begin to work on the center-running lane stations at Hunts Lane and Carnegie Drive.

During the next few weeks, the planter walls at the Tippecanoe Avenue station on Hospitality Lane will be formed and poured.

On the east end of Hospitality Lane, crews have achieved key milestones in building the center-running lane station at Tippecanoe Avenue. The concrete structure slab has been poured and planter walls will be formed and poured during the next few weeks.

Center road work on South E Street

Crews work on paving the southbound lane on E Street near the Regal Cinemas in Downtown San Bernardino.

As part of the Omnitrans sbX Bus Rapid Transit Line Construction Project, street improvements are currently being made along the middle portion of E Street between 6th Street in Downtown San Bernardino and Hospitality Lane.

Just last week, asphalt pavement improvements were completed on time between Mill Street and Orange Show Road. Additionally, the area nearest the curb in the southbound direction on E Street was also paved between 6th Street and 2nd Street. In the coming weeks, a new concrete sidewalk will be poured on the west side of the street near Court Street in Downtown.

Paving on E Street between Mill Street and Orange Show Road was completed on time and opened up on February 15.

This week, center area work began on E Street between Orange Show Road and Hospitality Lane in which crews remove the old section of road and will pave the street with new asphalt. This work is expected to be completed the first week of March 2013, weather permitting. Crews are working during the day with some activities at night.

sbX Bus Rapid Transit crews celebrate safety record

Six months ago, we began construction on our sbX bus rapid transit line. Despite the many challenges of working within an active transportation corridor, the GriffithCompany and Comet Electric joint venture construction team completed 50,000 man hours without a time-lost reportable incident.  That’s the equivalent of one person working 24 years without incident! The project has also brought jobs to 60 residents of the Omnitrans service area.

On July 12, sbX construction workers and staff took a brief break from the extreme heat and humidity to be recognized by project management for their exemplary safety record with a barbeque lunch.

Keep up with the latest sbX news. Join us on the Omnitrans sbX Facebook page at http://facebook.com/omnitrans.sbx for more great photos and articles!
