Adelanto Looks Forward to Improving Highway 395

According to the Victorville Daily Press, April 17, 2015, city officials are looking forward to improvements related to a major construction project on Highway 395 that includes widening to four lanes between Palmdale Road/Highway 18 and Chamberlaine Way. “It is the next big priority project up here in the High Desert,” Interim City Manager Tom Thornton said. The project area in Adelanto is planned to connect with a six-lane widening of Highway 395 to the south — from Interstate 15 to Palmdale Road — and four lanes of improvements on the highway to the north, to just south of Highway 58. The entire project is estimated to cost $109 million, a regional transportation spokesman said. “Currently Caltrans has completed the environmental (study) and is designing the construction plans,” Thornton said. Ultimately, the project will widen the highway and add turn pockets at key intersections to reduce backup on the through lanes, San Bernardino Associated Governments spokesman Tim Watkins said in an email. “Construction is anticipated to start by early spring 2018 and last approximately one year,” Watkins wrote. The Highway 395 project reach through Adelanto is being funded 100 percent by Measure I half-cent gasoline tax revenue, Thornton said.
