SBCTA in cooperation with Caltrans, is proposing to extend the eastbound (EB) truck climbing lane (TCL) on Interstate 10 (I-10) from the existing EB off-ramp at Live Oak Canyon Road located in the City of Yucaipa, San Bernardino County, California to just east of the existing County Line Road EB off-ramp at the Riverside County line (Project) in the City of Calimesa. The extension of the existing TCL for approximately an additional 3-miles, which includes steep uphill portions, would improve operations on the interstate by separating trucks and other slow moving vehicles from faster moving passenger vehicles. This Project would reduce conflicts between automobiles and slow-moving trucks, and reduce the frequency of truck-related accidents.
On Wednesday, July 15, 2020 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., a virtual presentation and Q&A was presented live on the Zoom platform. The meeting was held virtually due to social distancing considerations. The PPT presentation from the virtual hearing and other project documents are included in the Project Documents tab (above.)
