Corona PD Advisory: Main Street Squeeze

The Corona Police Department is offering five tips to help motorists navigate the Main Squeeze: Allow extra travel time. Do yourself a favor and leave for work or school a little earlier. That will help you relax and be more patient as your drive through this area. Make good driving decisions. When the road narrows, move over and get behind the car in front of you. Please don’t try to go around that car and then get stuck at the K-rail (cement barrier) up ahead. There are “No U-Turn” signs at Third St. and on Grand Blvd, don’t try and make a U-turn. Please follow all rules of the road and be patient during this time. Pay attention. Travel conditions will be changing during the next two years. K-rails will be shifting.
