Public meeting planned to discuss bike lane connectivity
Posted on 05/12/2016

City of Redlands staff will hold a public stakeholder meeting from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. Monday, May 16, to discuss a proposed grant-funded project to install bicycle lanes on portions of San Bernardino and Alabama Street, connecting the Orange Blossom Trail, the Redlands cycling network and the Santa Ana River Trail. The meeting will be held in the Redlands City Council Chambers, 35 Cajon St. All members of the public are welcome to attend.

The project leverages existing cycling facilities within the City to create a large regional network that will allow for uninterrupted bike travel between existing routes, integration with regional networks in Highland and San Bernardino County and access to the popular Santa Ana River Trail, which will soon be extended through Redlands by the San Bernardino County Parks Department. The County of San Bernardino and City of San Bernardino are project partners.

The project will be designed and managed by the Redlands Municipal Utilities and Engineering Department and is anticipated to be funded through a grant from California’s Active Transportation Program (ATP). During the stakeholder meeting, staff will explain the project in more detail and seek input from attendees on ways to improve the project proposal.

Questions may be directed to the staff liaison, Kjeld Lindsted, senior administrative analyst, at (909) 798-7527, ext. 8.
