Rolling out the welcome mat
Robert Rogers, Staff Writer
SAN BERNARDINO — The look of a freeway exit can affect the way you view a community.
That’s what Councilman Chas Kelley says. And that’s why he pushed hard to beautify the intersate 215 northbound off-ramp at University Parkway.
There, crews are laying a river rock shouldr, dotted with larger boulders, to line a few hundred feet along the off-ramp. Palm trees and a flowering plum tree are also planned, Kelly said.
The work is being done with a $20,000 donation from developer Watson & Associates, which is matched by the city.
“It’s about time we polished up a little, ” Kelley says.
