US 395 is one of the main north/south highways in southern California that provides access and links economic centers, recreational areas, and urban and rural regions. For the past year, SBCTA has been working to widen US 395 from two lanes to four lanes and install turn lanes and signals at various intersections within the project limits – US 395 between SR 18 in Victorville and Chamberlaine Way in Adelanto. Once complete, this five-mile stretch of US 395, will realize enhanced safety, congestion relief, and improved travel times.
During the next few months, crews will finish paving on the northbound side of US 395 and will then shift traffic to enter into the final stage of construction. In this final stage, crews will pave and restripe the lanes, complete electrical installation, and test all of the new signals including those at Seneca Road and Mojave Drive as well as the new video detection systems, which will help signals operate more efficiently at Chamberlaine Way. Lastly, crews will complete the installation of sound walls throughout the corridor as needed.
