Capital Improvement Program

Public Works Employees Working a CIP Project

The Capital Improvement Program (CIP) is administered by the Public Works Engineering Division. The program provides for maintenance and improvements to existing infrastructure as well as new installations to support future growth in the City of Chino. The division oversees and manages the planning, design, bidding, construction inspection, and project management functions for City-sponsored CIP projects.

CIP projects underway include the following:

  • Arterial Highways
  • Local Streets
  • Traffic Signal Modification/ Installation
  • Sewer/ Storm Drain
  • Water
  • Various Landscape Improvements

The CIP was developed with input from City departments and citizen groups and was adopted by the City Council based on identified needs. The projects are funded from a variety of sources such as the General Fund, Community Development Block Grant, Measure I, SB 1 and other local and federal grants.

  1. Pine avenue extension

The City of Chino (City), in coordination with the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), proposes to extend Pine Avenue from State Route 71 (SR-71) eastward to El Prado Road as an urban four-lane arterial and to widen Pine Avenue to a four-lane arterial from El Prado Road to Euclid Avenue (SR-83) in the Cities of Chino and Chino Hills. The proposed work will encroach upon wetlands and a floodplain. The project is being evaluated to determine if there are any practical alternatives to avoid this encroachment or, if not, to ensure that all practical measures are taken to minimize harm to the wetlands and floodplain. The proposed work will have an effect on historic properties eligible for the National Register of Historic Places. Caltrans has evaluated whether adequate mitigation measures can be incorporated into the project plans.
