91 Refresh Project

0622 91 Refresh Project

Status: Construction

Location: Eastbound and westbound 91 between the Lincoln Ave Interchange and Interstate 15 in Corona

Type of Project: Highways

Location: Eastbound and westbound 91 between the Lincoln Ave Interchange and Interstate 15 in Corona

Construction: Anticipated from summer 2022 to spring 2023

Investment: $12.6 million


The Riverside County Transportation Commission, in partnership with Caltrans, is repaving lanes and making repairs to sound walls and associated concrete barriers along the outer portions of eastbound and westbound 91 in Corona. Work will take place mainly between the Lincoln Ave interchange and Interstate 15, in an area with a long history of roadway settlement. This work is part of an ongoing investment in the heavily traveled 91 corridor.

The “91 Refresh” work will take place during the summer of 2022 through spring of 2023. Temporary lane shifts, weekend full closures, and lane closures will allow crews to safely complete the repaving and repair work. The lane shifts will help preserve the current number of lanes available to motorists and reduce the number of required nightly lane closures and weekend closures. Work on surface streets also will occur.

Please register for email updates at 91Refresh@rctc.org or text “91REFRESH” to 77222 for text updates.

Work will occur from June 2022 and is expected to be completed by spring 2023. Schedules may change, due to weather, material availability, and staffing.

Lane shifts, lane closures, and weekend closures will be needed starting June 20. Please watch for updates related to this work.

This section of the 91 has a long history of roadway settlement. In late 2021 and early 2022, crews strengthened the soil in various locations beneath the 91. The 91 Refresh will remove and replace sections of pavement and repair sound walls and concrete median barriers along the 91.

A weekend full closure of the westbound 91 from I-15 to Lincoln Avenue is scheduled for Friday, January 27 at 10 p.m. to Monday, January 30 at 5 a.m in Corona. Click here for details.

1/29 UPDATE: Westbound 91 McKinley Street off-ramp heading north and south may close temporarily this afternoon. Please avoid the area and use alternate routes. Crews are on track to open the westbound 91 on-time.
