RCTC Opens New Westbound Lane, Green River Road in Corona to 241 in Anaheim Hills

Jan 7, 2022 | MSHCP, News

RCTC opened a new lane on westbound 91 between Green River Road in Corona and the 241 Toll Road in Anaheim Hills during the pre-dawn hours of January 6. This new, two-mile, non-tolled lane, built as the centerpiece of the 91 Corridor Operations Project, is expected to offer some traffic congestion relief, particularly for morning commuters.

“Preserving open space and protecting habitat while building critical infrastructure is the core mission of the RCA,” said RCA Chair and Lake Elsinore Mayor Pro Tem Natasha Johnson. “When we all work together, we can benefit both our environment and the region’s infrastructure,” she said.

RCTC began construction in November 2020 using strategic project staging with financial incentives to the contractor. This allowed RCTC to complete the project quickly and reduce the effects of construction on motorists and neighbors.  Watch our video for a closer look at how this project was completed in record time and its benefit to our region.

Partners for the $29 million investment included the Orange County Transportation Authority, Caltrans, the Transportation Corridor Agencies, and the City of Corona.

The 91 COP marks one of many planned and completed along the 91 and 15 corridors to help manage traffic congestion and improve the quality of life in this growing area. To learn more about RCTC projects, visit our website.
