91 Project Update
March 2014

Thank you for your interest in the Riverside County Transportation Commission's 91 Project. This monthly e-bulletin offers news and updates about this project, which is starting construction in Corona and Riverside. For the latest information, please stay connected through the links below and the project helpline.

91 Project Creates Jobs, Stimulates Economy

Riverside County's unemployment rate remains higher than the nation's average, and the 91 Project is providing a much needed boost in job opportunities. The 91 Project is creating 16,200 jobs and will provide a 2.3 percent permanent increase in local taxable sales, according to Beacon Economics, an independent economics research firm. Of the 16,200 new jobs forecasted, about 4,600 are related to project construction - the balance is related to long-term employment. 


Close to 300 team members are employed at the 91 Project office in Corona, working on project design and construction. Please visit the Doing Business with RCTC page of the 91 website to contact the project's design-build contractor for subconsulting/subcontracting and disadvantaged business opportunities. 


In addition, the logistics industry has been identified as one of the region's most promising job sectors, and the 91 Project will support the movement of goods through the region.  The project also will enhance access to Corona businesses, resulting in potential new businesses in the area and increased job opportunities.


Avoid Construction, Congestion: Take Metrolink

Construction activity during the 91 Project will make ridesharing a smart choice for commuting and recreational travel. Avoid possible delays by hopping aboard Metrolink and leaving construction behind. Two Metrolink lines serve the immediate area: 


  • The 91 Line operates trains Monday through Friday, starting at the Downtown Riverside station, continuing through Corona and Orange County and ending at Los Angeles Union Station. 
  • The Inland Empire Orange County Line provides service seven days a week, with trains departing San Bernardino and continuing to stations in Riverside, Corona and nine Orange County cities. 
RCTC has begun construction of the Perris Valley Line, which will extend Metrolink's 91 Line 24 miles. This Metrolink extension will include new stations in Riverside Hunter Park, Moreno Valley/March Field, Downtown Perris and South Perris. Train service is expected to start in late 2015. Visit the Perris Valley Line project website for additional information and visit www.metrolinktrains.com for Metrolink schedules and fares.

91 Project Reaches out to Community

The 91 Project team is continuing to be a visible presence in the Corona and Riverside areas. Team members will be staffing a booth at the March 13 State of the City event at the Crossroads Church in Corona; please drop by to ask questions and receive information. The team also is available to make presentations to community groups and businesses.
