REDLANDS, CA – The San Bernardino County Transportation Authority (SBCTA) will host an open house on Monday evening, Oct. 21, to provide information on street closures and detours relative to construction of the Redlands Passenger Rail Project.
The open house will be held from 6-8 p.m. in the Contemporary Club Building at the A.K. Smiley Public Library, 173 S. Eureka St., Redlands.
The Redlands Passenger Rail Project will add a nine-mile rail connection between the University of Redlands and the San Bernardino Transit Center, a multi-modal transit hub that can provide access to all points west. When completed, the project will house the Arrow commuter line, featuring specially designed low-emission passenger trains that ultimately can be converted to zero-emission vehicles. The zero-emission units would be the first of their kind in North America.
The Arrow system is expected to be operational in 2021.
During construction, there will be street closures at the rail crossings at various times. Streets impacted include:
Staff will be on hand to answer questions during the open house. It will also be available Live on SBCTA’s Facebook page.
