91 Project Update
June 2016

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 under construction in Corona and Riverside. For the latest information, please stay connected through the links below and the project helpline.
Series of Nighttime Full Closures of 91 Start June 4

As part of the Riverside County Transportation Commission's (RCTC) 91 Project, a series of nighttime full closures of westbound 91 at Maple Street and eastbound 91 at Interstate 15 started June 4, with closures planned to continue for three to four weeks. Closures will occur Monday through Saturday nights. Lane reductions will occur approximately an hour before the full closures.

These closures are necessary for crews to continue working on the new westbound 91 Maple Street on-ramp bridge, the new Maple Street bridge, and the tolled direct connector between the 91 and I-15. 

During the westbound 91 closures at Maple Street, motorists will exit the Maple Street off-ramp, turn right at Maple Street, left on Pomona Road, left at Auto Center Drive and re-enter westbound 91. These closures will occur for approximately three weeks. 

During the eastbound 91 closures, motorists will be detoured to southbound I-15 to exit Magnolia Avenue and then directed to re-enter northbound I-15 to continue east on the 91. The City of Corona will adjust the traffic signal at Magnolia Avenue to optimize traffic flow. Please note that the eastbound 91 to northbound I-15 connector and the southbound I-15 to eastbound 91 connector also will be closed while the nighttime closures are occurring. The eastbound 91 closures will be under way for about four weeks. 

For specific closure hours, please refer to the project's weekly Construction Alerts. Please watch for changeable message signs, allow extra travel time, and follow detour routes. Closure hours and durations are subject to change.

91/Perris Valley Line Now Rolling

Southern California commuters now have another transportation option with the start of Metrolink service on the 91/Perris Valley Line on June 6. The Riverside County Transportation Commission and Metrolink added 24 miles to the existing 91 Line to extend service through Riverside and Perris. This is the first extension of Metrolink service since the Antelope Valley Line was built in 1994. 

Trains will operate Monday-Friday from four new stations: Perris-South, Perris-Downtown, Moreno Valley/March Field and Riverside Hunter Park/UCR. The new service provides greater access to Metrolink's regional commuter rail network for residents in southwestern Riverside County. 

Service will begin as early as 4:37 am from the Perris-South Station to Los Angeles Union Station, including stops at the Riverside-La Sierra Station, Corona-North Main Station and Corona-West Station. Evening trains will return as late as 7:50 pm to the South Perris Station. There also will be three round-trips trains each weekday between Perris and the Riverside-Downtown Station. 

RCTC and Metrolink are offering promotional fares to promote the new service. A $10 round-trip fare is available for passengers riding from any of the four new Metrolink stations to destinations within Riverside County. A 10 percent discount is available to destinations outside of Riverside County. Seniors (65+), riders with disabilities, active duty military and students also have discounted fares. For more information on the 91/Perris Valley Line, please visit Metrolink's website

Construction of the 91/Perris Valley Line began in October 2013. The project also included construction and rehabilitation of railroad tracks and upgrades to 15 at-grade crossings. 

Watch for Upcoming 91 Project Activities

The 91 Project team reminds motorists that work is continuing full speed ahead, with a number of activities planned for the coming weeks. Please watch for the following anticipated activities and closures: 
  • Full closure of Ontario Avenue undercrossing - Nighttime full closures of the Ontario Avenue undercrossing will occur approximately June 6-17. Please refer to Construction Alerts for specific closure times.
  • Two-month closure of westbound Serfas Club off-ramp - This closure is expected to begin in July for approximately two months. 
  • Reopening of Main Street ramps - The eastbound 91 Main Street on-ramp is expected to reopen in late June, and the westbound 91 Main Street off-ramp is expected to reopen in July.
The project is more than 70 percent complete. For a look at the progress, please see this month's 91 Seconds on the 91 video.
