Base Line Safety Improvement Project - Improved Traffic Flow - 10/13/16
Yesterday afternoon the City's contractor removed traffic control for eastbound traffic on Base Line at SR-210 to eliminate closure of the number one lane since it is no longer needed at this time. With this removal of the traffic control devices, the dual left-turns lanes have been reopened for the westbound off ramp at Base Line and SR-210. In addition, the contractor is also going to open up the second eastbound left-turn on Base Line at Boulder Avenue this morning before noon. These traffic control revisions will provide improved traffic circulation and reduce delays for motorists traveling through Base Line. However, it should be noted that closure of the westbound number one lane on Base Line between Boulder Avenue and Seine Avenue will be closed until the landscape median work is completed. We anticipate the median landscape to be completed in November of 2016.


About the City

Come Home to Highland


A Proud History
Highland's original townsite was founded in 1891, and the community soon became an important contributor to the citrus industry. Many of the buildings constructed during the town's early era are still in use, helping to preserve the sense of community and transition into the Highland of today.

Full Range of Housing Options
Highland is primarily a residential community and offers a full range of affordable housing options. Currently, six different residential developers are building here. Our City is also the home of East Highlands Ranch, a master-planned community featuring premium housing and private recreation facilities.

Books Education is a top priority in Highland, with two award-winning school districts serving the community: The Redlands Unified School District and the San Bernardino Unified School District, both of which have schools that were named as California Distinguished Schools. Several private and parochial schools and many licensed preschools also serve the immediate area. College-bound students will have no problem finding quality education close to home. Highland is only minutes from the best, fully accredited undergraduate and graduate universities and colleges the state: University of Redlands, Loma Linda University, University of California at Riverside, and California State University San Bernardino. Community Colleges include San Bernardino Valley and Crafton.

Rolling Along Flanked by the often snowcapped peaks of the San Bernardino and San Gabriel Mountains, Highland is close to an array of skiing and other mountain recreational opportunities. The community is also only 45 minutes from Palm Springs and is located close to all of the Southern California's other cultural and recreational attractions. Highland has an extensive trails system linking to the Santa Ana River Trail which will one day connect the San Bernardino Mountains to the Orange County coast.
