Replacement of the Mt. Vernon Bridge in San Bernardino is a top priority, and a significant reason why I voted for Senate Bill 1, The Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017.
The passage of SB1 provides the revenue necessary to get this vital project completed. SB1 was designed to repair our crumbling infrastructure and replacement of the Mt. Vernon Bridge follows that intent. In furthering this effort I have worked closely with the San Bernardino County Transportation Authority and California Transportation Commission to secure the funding necessary to repair this essential infrastructure.
The Mt. Vernon Bridge in San Bernardino serves as the main artery between the city and the west side. This connection ensures that working families and communities are not cut off from the rest of the city.
