SR 210 Case study summary

The project for this case study is the widening of State Route (SR) 210 from Sterling Avenue to San Bernardino Avenue in the cities of San Bernardino, Highland and Redlands as well as an unincorporated portion of San Bernardino County. The proposed project will add one additional, 8.2-mile, mixed flow lane in each direction. The purpose is to eliminate an existing bottleneck caused by a reduction in the number of mixed flow lanes. The project was selected because it provides a perspective on the potential impact of a capacity expansion and the identification and implementation of potential mitigation strategies.


The Cannery Case Study Summary

The Cannery is a 100-acre, mixed-use land use development consisting of 550 homes (single family, town homes, and apartments), a small retail area, plus a community garden, parks and other open space. It is less than two miles from downtown Davis, about ten miles from Sacramento, and within the boundary of the Sacramento Area Council of Governments (SACOG). The Cannery was selected because of its mixture of uses and its location on the city’s edge as well as on the edge of a major urban region, Sacramento.


Empire Lakes Case Study SumMary

Empire Lakes is a 160-acre land use project on a former golf course. Located within the City of Rancho Cucamonga in San Bernardino County, it is adjacent to a Metrolink commuter rail station and surrounded by a mix of commercial, residential, and light industrial uses. The Empire Lakes Specific Plan calls for a mixed-use project with higher density residential units than its surroundings. The total number of dwelling units envisioned is between 2,650 and 3,450, to be determined during the entitlement process. Up to 220,000 square feet of non-residential uses would also be allowed, as well as open space.
