New 395 Freeway Getting Closer For High Desert – Oak Hills Phelan Adelanto And Victorville Affected – Three Lanes Each Direction

Proposed Routes

(Best Syndication) There has been a tug-of war between the State of California, the City of Victorville, and the County of San Bernardino concerning a planned 395 Freeway, but the project may be closer to fruition. Plans were discussed at a meeting at the Quail Valley Middle School in Phelan on February 26th in an effort to elicit comments.

The city of Victorville does not want to turn the current Highway-395 into a freeway. In fact they have continued to develop around the current street in an effort to stop the project at that location. The State and County are now considering alternate routes, while not completely eliminating that option.

They have been considering alternates that would start somewhere around Oak Hills. They presented three options for a 22-mile freeway between Hesperia and Adelanto. This was their first step towards conducting an Environmental Impact Report (EIR). It is hoped that once the route is declared, that building will stop along it. When completed it should be a 44-mile stretch between Hesperia and Kraemer Junction.

Although the plans are still in the preliminary stages and construction is unlikely be begin before 2015, the state is looking to preserve a right-of-way. They say it should go from southern Hesperia to north of State Route 58 at Farmington
Road., Inc.

The option-H plan would cut through proposed housing tracts of West Victorville, including Victoria Homes. Alternative G would cross between Quail Valley Middle School and Baldy Mesa Elementary School in Phelan. Alternative F would parallel the railroad tracks at Phelan Road to White Road and then head north.

All of the options will likely affect Oak Hills residents. G and F will push the freeway farther west and parallel the railroad tracks in northwestern Oak Hills and southeastern Phelan. These two options are expected to get the least resistance. The difference between these two is that G would place an interchanged at Phelan and Baldy Mesa Roads, and F would put one at Baldy Mesa Road and the Railroad tracks.

It does not make sense to build new houses and then tear them down to build a freeway. This is why the state is looking to preserve a right of way early. The initial plans would incorporate a freeway with three lanes of traffic in both directions and a wide center for future expansion to five lanes each way.
