Breaking Ground on Project

Construction Set to Start on Adelanto Retail Center

As stated in an article in the Victorville Daily Press, November 4, 2018, building of the long-awaited Adelanto Towne Center, delayed for several years because of two jet fuel lines underneath the project site, is set to begin. City officials announced that a deal has been reached with Caltrans and Kinder Morgan, a major energy infrastructure company that owns the pipelines, to wrap the lines with a concrete cap. The project is scheduled to be built on the southwest corner of Highway 395 and Mojave Drive. Construction was set to begin in late November or early December 2018. The city of Victorville, whose property is on the east side of the highway, has signed off on a final detour plan at the intersection. Mojave Drive will be partially closed for five months, according to Adelanto officials, to allow for the pipeline cap installation and widening of Highway 395. “Once we’ve completed widening our side of Highway 395, including the concrete cap, breaking ground can occur for the nine buildings in the 12.5-acre retail shopping center,” City Engineer Brian Wolfe said in a statement. Wolfe said the Adelanto Towne Center will include more than 54,000 square feet of building area with a car wash, multi-tenant retail stores, a fast food restaurant and a gas station. Following the concrete cap installation and highway widening, utility and grading operations are expected to take about three months and then a roughly seven-month construction phase will begin, city officials say. The project is expected to be completed in early 2020. Mayor Rich Kerr said the project will lead to more jobs and tax revenue for the city.
