15/91 Connector Project Facts

PROJECT STATUS: PRE-CONSTRUCTION

  • OVERVIEW

    The Riverside County Transportation Commission, in partnership with Caltrans, is preparing to build the 15/91 Express Lanes Connector, which will link the future southbound 15 Express Lanes currently under construction to the westbound 91 Express Lanes and link the eastbound 91 Express Lanes to the future northbound 15 Express Lanes under construction.

    The 15/91 Express Lanes Connector is designed to provide a seamless transition between these Riverside County tolling systems for reliable, convenient travel for Eastvale, Jurupa Valley and Norco residents and express buses.

    RCTC received $180 million in funding from Senate Bill 132 and has committed to fund the remaining balance with excess toll revenue from the operating 91 Express Lanes. RCTC is also seeking federal funds to build this direct connector.

    The project will:

    • Allow seamless transition for motorists between existing 91 Express Lanesand future 15 Express Lanes
    • Reduce congestion and improve traffic operations
    • Enhance traffic flow
    • Increase travel time reliability

    Construction is planned to begin in fall 2020 with the connector opening by the end of 2022.
