210 Freeway

San Bernardino Associated Governments and the California Department of Transportation will open the final 7.25 miles of State Route 210 to drivers through Rialto and San Bernardino on July 24 at 10 a.m. The new section of freeway will extend from Alder Avenue in Rialto to the connection with State Route 30 in San Bernardino.

Construction has been underway on Route 210 since mid-2003, following the opening of the first 20-mile section of freeway in November 2002 between La Verne and Fontana. Costs for this last section through Rialto and San Bernardino total approximately $233 million.

The freeway will include three travel lanes and a carpool lane in each direction and will feature on-ramps and off-ramps at Alder Avenue, Ayala Drive and Riverside Avenue in Rialto, as well as State Street in San Bernardino. Once the City of Rialto extends Pepper Avenue north to the freeway, on-ramps and off-ramps will be built at Pepper.

SANBAG, Caltrans and the California Highway Patrol will coordinate the opening of the freeway on Tuesday morning. A Media Advisory will be issued on Friday with details about a suggested photo/filming location. Media representatives are encouraged to seek comments from local elected representatives, including Rialto Mayor Grace Vargas, San Bernardino Mayor Pat Morris, Fontana Mayor Mark Nuaimi and San Bernardino County Supervisor Josie Gonzales.

Work will continue under the current construction contract for several months after the freeway opens next week. Flyover ramps to connect eastbound Route 210 to southbound Interstate 215 and northbound Interstate 215 to westbound Route 210 will be built in the future. Until the flyover ramps are built, drivers needing to make these freeway transitions are encouraged to follow the established detour between State Street and Interstate 215.

Eastbound 210 drivers wishing to connect to southbound I-215 should exit State Street, travel east on20th Street, north on California Street, east on Highland Avenue and north on Mt. Vernon to reach Interstate 215. Trucks should exit State Street, travel east on 20th Street, north on California Street and proceed east on Highland Avenue to reach Interstate 215. Northbound Interstate 215 travelers wishing to connect to westbound Route 210 should use the above detour in reverse.
