Drivers on Interstate 15 currently have another travel alternative between Eastvale/Jurupa Valley and Corona. The Riverside County Transportation Commission (RCTC) opened fifteen miles of express cost lanes Saturday morning, offering quicker travel on the bustling north-south hall.
“RCTC is eager to open these new lanes to give another approach to will work, school, or recreational destinations,” said RCTC Chair and Palm Desert Mayor Pro Tem Jan Harnik. “We realize that time is valuable, and the express lanes offer comfort and dependable excursion times for drivers,” she said.
The Riverside County Transportation Commission started development of the $472 million I-15 Express Lanes Project in April 2018. Notwithstanding the new lanes, the project extended 11 extensions and added six sound walls.
Temporarily, carpools of at least three with a functioning record and a FasTrak® Flex transponder will pay a half limited rate or ride free of charge temporarily.
Subsidizing was given by Measure A, the elector endorsed half-cent sales tax for transportation upgrades in Riverside County, and federal sources. Cost income will be utilized to reimburse a $152 million federal transportation infrastructure loan and to work and keep up the lanes.
As per RCTC, about 3,300 development occupations were made by the project.
