Second Phase of Street Improvement Program

Second Phase of San Bernardino’s Street Improvement Program Moving Forward
Posted on Feb 10, 2022

The San Bernardino City Council approved the second phase of a four phase, 53-street plan to repave and resurface streets and repair sidewalks throughout San Bernardino.

The most recent contract, approved on February 2, was awarded to All American Asphalt in the amount of $4.7 million. It will encompass segments of nine streets in the city. Work on this phase, which will also include ADA accessible ramps, drainage, sidewalk installation, signage, and curb/gutter improvements, will begin later this month and should be completed by June 2022.

“Improving the conditions of our streets has been one of the top priorities of our residents,” said City Manager Robert Field. “Our Mayor and City Council have responded with a program encompassing 53 streets in a very short period of time.”

Streets that will be improved in this phase are:

  • King Street: between K Street and Mt. Vernon Avenue (Ward 1)
  • Highland Avenue: between 210/215 interchange and Lincoln (Ward 2)
  • K Street: between Mill Street and Hillcrest Avenue (Ward 3)
  • Pumalo Street: Arden Avenue to Sterling Avenue (Ward 4)
  • Churchill Street: between Belmont Avenue and Olive Avenue (Ward 5)
  • Baseline Street: between Medical Center and Mt. Vernon Avenue (Ward 6)
  • 28th Street: between Golden Avenue to end Flood Control (Ward 7)
  • Parkdale Avenue: between Mt. View Avenue to Sierra Way (Wards 4 & 7)
  • Mill Street: between Allen Street to G Street (Wards 1 & 3)

Bids are currently being sought for phase three, which will encompass fourteen additional streets, with a subsequent bid solicitation for twenty-three streets to follow shortly after. In December, a contract was awarded to Onyx Paving Company for work on seven streets across town. Work on that phase began in January and should be completed June 2022.

The streets identified for rehabilitation work were prioritized through a March 2020 pavement management analysis completed by the Public Works Department, which used scientific methods to rate the condition of all public streets in San Bernardino.

In 2021, the City of San Bernardino Public Works Department improved and rehabilitated over 3.8 million square feet of roadway, 37,000 square feet of curb, gutter, and sidewalk, and 119 ADA accessible ramps throughout the city.
