Full Closures throughout December
Please anticipate ongoing nighttime full closures of the 91 throughout the month of December. These closures are necessary for crews to remove support structures for the Lincoln Avenue Bridge and other work. No nighttime work is scheduled December 24-26 or December 31-January 2, in observance of the Christmas and New Year's holidays. Please watch for upcoming announcements of closures on eastbound 91 and westbound 91 and follow detour routes.

December to Bring Gifts of New Ramps
New ramps are on schedule to open this month, just in time for the holidays. The westbound 91 Lincoln Avenue on-ramp, the westbound 91 Maple Street off-ramp and the eastbound 91 Main Street on-ramp to northbound and southbound Interstate 15 all are set to open later this month.

Please watch for notices of these newly opened ramps and be alert to new driving conditions in these areas.  



Hear the Ping? Don't Worry, FasTrak Account Holders!
Testing is under way on the future 91 Express Lanes in Riverside County, so drivers may hear their FasTrak transponders pinging, chiming and beeping near the new lanes in Corona. Don't worry, accounts will not be charged until drivers use the new lanes, which are scheduled to open in spring 2017. Please watch for announcements of the opening of the lanes this spring!
 

TCA Seeks Comments for Proposed 241/91 Express Connector 

Courtesy Article for TCA

The Transportation Corridor Agencies and Caltrans are proposing to build a direct, median-to-median, tolled connector to link the 241 Toll Road and the 91 Express Lanes. This "Express Connector" would decrease traffic congestion, enhance safety by reducing weaving across lanes, and improve toll lane access in Orange and Riverside Counties.

 

A draft environmental document is available for public review through January 9. Please submit comments via email or US Mail to:
