RCTC I-215 North Project Image

Status: Long-Term

Location: Western Riverside County

Type of Project: Highways

Location: Interstate 215 between Nuevo Road in Perris to State Route 60 in Riverside

Construction: Long Range


RCTC, in partnership with Caltrans, proposes to widen a 10.75-mile section of Interstate 215 from Nuevo Road in Perris to the 60/215 Interchange in Riverside. One carpool lane is proposed to be added to I-215 in both directions, as well as a westbound auxiliary lane to improve traffic merging onto Route 60. The project is in the expenditure plan for Measure A, the voter-approved half-cent sales tax measure for transportation improvements in Riverside County. Measure A will fund a portion of the project. However, the expenditure plan assumed 50 percent of all project expenses would be paid for with federal and state transportation funding sources. These sources are currently funded far below historical levels; therefore, until additional funding is available, RCTC cannot proceed with environmental reviews, design, right-of-way acquisition, or construction of the project.
