Capital Improvement Program


The capital improvement program of the Engineering Division includes engineering and contract administration for major projects for streets, storm drains, parks, and various public buildings.

The division staff either provides in-house design for the improvement, or administers consultant contracts for major project designs outside of the scope of staff to complete. Staff handles all contract administration related to bids, project execution, final inspection and payments.

Street Improvements and Measure I

Many of the City’s street-related capital improvement projects are funded through the use of Measure I funds. Adopted by San Bernardino County voters in 1989, Measure I is a major source of revenue for transportation improvements in the City of Redlands. This 20-year half-cent sales tax provided more than $10.0 million for Redlands’ streets and roads during the first 14 years. Regional projects are also funded by Measure I. Several freeway improvement projects are being developed. The most recent project is widening the freeway through Redlands between Orange Street and Ford Street by adding a mixed-flow lane in both directions in the center median island, and install sound walls in various locations between Orange Street and Highland Avenue on both sides of the freeway. In 2004 the voters approved the reauthorization of Measure “I” to extend the half-cent sales tax to fund local and regional transportation improvement for an additional 30 year period.
