NOV 2014 – Chamber in Support of Business During Construction

4  Support of Business LOGO

As an advocate for business in Redlands, the Chamber of Commerce encourages the community to continue supporting local businesses while the City of Redlands works to improve our local infrastructure.

The City of Redlands has embarked on a major Capital Improvement Project for the intersection of Redlands Boulevard and Alabama Street. Average daily traffic reaches 20,000 vehicles on Redlands Boulevard and 18,000 vehicles on Alabama Street, according to the City’s Municipal Utilities and Engineering Department.

Improvements to this area vital to the City and local business include: widening the intersection in all directions; installing pipeline within the project area;, ADA and sidewalk improvements; creating a signalized T-intersection at Colton Avenue where it merges with Redlands Boulevard; and realigning a 22-foot-offset on Alabama Street.4  Support of business logo 2

While temporarily inconvenient, these improvements will ultimately ease travel for residents and visitors and create a welcoming environment for all our local businesses.

All businesses remain open during construction and marked entrances are there to help direct you to your favorite local merchants. The Chamber encourages residents and visitors to support these businesses.

For more information about the project, please call Olivia Crowley, Community Relations Coordinator for the City of Redlands at 909-798-7584 ext. 3.
