Colton Avenue and Nevada Street in Redlands will be closed from 8 p.m. Friday, May 29, through 5 a.m. Monday, May 29, for work on crossings for the Redlands Passenger Rail Project, the San Bernardino County Transportation Authority reports.

Similar work has been underway since April 13 on Arrowhead Avenue and D Street and is scheduled to begin on  24 hours a day starting on June 8 on Central Avenue, both in San Bernardino

In observance of Memorial Day, there will be no construction activity on Monday, May 25.

The next phase of the project will have crews completing civil work and signal installation at each crossing as well as roadwork activities such as repaving in and around the crossings. This work will require mostly alternating lane closures with the possibility of full closures.
