Construction Heats up near 15/91 Interchange, Prado Road Bridge, Local Streets…

Construction activity is increasing along the project corridor, and the Riverside County Transportation Commission reminds drivers to slow down, be alert and watch for changing conditions. In August, crews shifted vehicles to temporary connectors from the southbound and northbound 15 to westbound 91. The northbound 15 to westbound 91 connector also was restriped, creating two through-lanes to Main Street. Crews also placed K-rail along the shoulder of the 91 to create a safety barrier between traffic and roadway widening work. Construction activity near the Prado Road Bridge also is under way, as well as work on E. Grand Boulevard and staging activities for various interchanges along the 91. On the 15, activities are focused in the median from the 15/91 interchange to Ontario Avenue.
