Adelanto Aims For Future Retail and Commercial Corridor Along Highway 395

As mentioned in the Victorville Daily Press, April 19, 2019, with roadwork on U.S. Highway 395 set to begin soon, Adelanto city officials are marking another step in the administration’s plan toward building a future commercial and retail corridor here. Construction crews will soon begin widening five miles of the city’s 16-mile portion of Highway 395, taking it from two to four lanes. The long-awaited project will include the section of highway from Palmdale Road, a border the city shares with Victorville, north to Chamberlaine Way. Crews should break ground soon and wrap up in spring 2021, a San Bernardino County Transportation Authority spokesperson said. It’s the first phase of a larger proposal set to bring infrastructure improvements including turnouts, rumble strips and a traffic light at Seneca Road to make the roadway safer. The SBCTA is working with Caltrans to eventually widen and bolster infrastructure along the highway from its start at Interstate 15, up to Desert Flower Road in north Adelanto. City Manager Jessie Flores pointed to three projects under construction as proof the city is pursuing business outside of the cannabis industry: 1.) At Air Expressway and Highway 395, crews have already broken ground on an ARCO/AM-PM gas station, Flores said. While the first phase of the project will potentially include a fast food restaurant, he said the second could bring a hotel. 2.) A Tesla charging station will accompany a car wash and gas station at Cactus Drive and Highway 395, where construction should start soon. A medical office building may come in future phases, Flores said. 3.) Crews are also set to break ground on the Adelanto Towne Center this “summer or early fall,” Flores said, although other dates, including April, have been floated in the past.
