Regional Connections

The Traffic Relief Plan is a county-wide strategy to improve traffic flow and safety, keep infrastructure in good condition, provide greater access to public transportation, and keep Riverside County as a region of opportunity for its residents. RCTC developed the Plan based on feedback from Riverside County residents and their elected representatives.


Constructing multi-modal transportation corridors that connect parts of Riverside County, relieving congestion on existing highways and local roads.

Examples include:

  • Extending Avenue 50 between I-10 and State Route 86 in the Coachella Valley
  • State Route 79 Realignment
  • Elsinore-Ethanac Expressway
  • I-10 Bypass between Banning and Cabazon
