OVERVIEW

The Riverside County Transportation Commission (RCTC), in partnership with the Southern California Regional Rail Authority (Metrolink), is upgrading the Moreno Valley/March Field Station in Riverside. This station serves Metrolink’s 91/Perris Valley Line and is the midpoint between the Perris-Downtown Station and the Riverside-Downtown Station. RCTC is the lead agency for this project.

Project benefits and features include:

  • Capacity: Adding a second train platform and lengthening the existing train platform to accommodate the length of Metrolink’s standard six-car trains. This will allow for service improvements on the 91/Perris Valley Line — both peak service and reverse commute service to and from adjacent counties — as well as improved service reliability within Riverside County. The project also will upgrade 2.5 miles of track that are part of a future nine-mile double-track corridor south of the station.
  • Traffic Flow: Reducing traffic congestion on Interstate 215 by providing efficient and reliable public transit options for Riverside County residents who have some of the longest commutes in southern California.
  • Clean Air: Reducing auto emissions by encouraging more residents to commute by train.

Construction is expected to begin in fall 2022 and be completed by spring 2024. Project funding is provided by a combination of sources, including a $32 million Federal Transportation Administration grant.

Work is expected to start fall 2022 and be completed by approximately spring 2024. Schedules may change, due to weather, material availability, and staffing.

Updates will be published when the project transitions to construction status.
