San Bernardino receives federal transportation grant

San Bernardino will plan upgrades to Baseline Street with a $240,800 grant it has received from the U.S. Department of Transportation.

City officials will look for ways to improve safety for bicyclists and pedestrians along Baseline Street between Meridian Avenue to Tippecanoe Avenue, according to a statement on the city’s website.

Once any improvements are made, San Bernardino will be able to compete for department funding that is set aside for similar projects.

“Baseline Street is one of the most important streets in San Bernardino, as it runs from the most eastern to the most western part of the city,” said Lynn Merrill, the city’s interim public works director, in the statement. “Using this grant to create a plan that implements safety enhancements along this corridor underscores the city’s commitment to improving our streets and intersections.”

The federal department recently awarded 385 Safe Streets and Roads for All grants to regional, local, and tribal communities nationwide, according to the statement.
