Major sbX Progress Seen on E Street

Landscaping has been put in at the Marshall Blvd. park-and-ride lot.

March has been a very busy month for construction crews working on the Omnitrans sbX Bus Rapid Transit Line Construction Project. All throughout the project corridor, construction progress can be seen – especially along E Street from Marshall Boulevard to Hospitality Lane.

On the north end of E Street, a variety of drought-resistant trees, including willows and shrubs, are being planted at the west and east lots of the Marshall Boulevard park-and-ride. At Highland Avenue, the steel structure for the side-boarding sbX station has been installed on the west side of the street.

In the downtown area between 6th and 2nd streets, work on the west side of E Street has focused on relocation of fire hydrants, storm drains, and sidewalk ramps. A section of sidewalk also was completed at Court Street. Current activities at the Rialto Avenue and North Mall Way stations have crews working on building planter walls.

E Street center-running lanes

Finally, a big milestone on the south end of E Street was the completion of asphalt work in the center running lanes between Orange Show Road and Hospitality Lane. Crews reinforced the roadway by removing the old asphalt, putting in a subgrade, base, geogrid mesh, and the new asphalt.

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.
