91 Project Overview
only major east-west route between Orange County and
Riverside County and is used heavily for commuting,
commercial transport and local travel.
Afternoon traffic congestion on State Route 91 between
Orange County and Riverside County is among the top 15
trouble spots in the nation. Traveling the 91 is a challenge in
either direction, any day of the week, including weekends.
Environmental approvals for this $1.3 billion project
were received in late 2012. A design-build approach will
allow the same firm to finalize the design and construct
the project, speeding up delivery by three to four years.
Construction is expected to begin in early 2014, with new
lanes anticipated to open by 2017.
The Riverside County Transportation Commission (RCTC)
and its project partners are moving “Fast Forward” with
the 91 Project. Extending from the Riverside County/
Orange County line in Corona to Pierce Street in Riverside,
the 91 Project will add regular lanes, tolled express lanes
and connectors and improve interchanges, bridges, ramps
and local streets. New connections between the 91 and
Interstate 15 also will be made.

These improvements are designed to reduce delays, offer
a choice between regular lanes and express lanes, allow
faster emergency response, relieve local street congestion
and provide better access to public transit and trails.

The 91 is approaching 50 years old, and the traffic demands
now placed on it far exceed its original design from the
early 1960s. Close to 280,000 vehicles travel this section
of the 91 each day, and that number is expected to grow
by another 140,000 vehicles daily by 2035. The 91 is the
