Traffic Alert!!: Corona, CA: 91 Freeway closes for 55 hours this weekend.
According to the Riverside County Transportation Commission, the 91 Freeway in Corona, California will be completely closed from 71 Expressway to Interstate 15 for 55 hours beginning at 9:00pm PT on Friday, February 19th, 2016.
All westbound traffic attempting to transit the 91 Freeway through Corona, California will be diverted onto Interstate 15, and all eastbound vehicles will be detoured onto the 71 Expressway.
According to the Riverside County Transportation Commission, the 91 Freeway closure in Corona, California is to do accommodate work on a freeway expansion project with crews demolishing the west side of the Maple Street Bridge, installing support beams for a new flyover ramp bridge, and pave a portion of the eastbound 91 Freeway under Interstate 15.
Motorists traveling on the 91 Freeway, 71 Expressway, or Interstate 15 near the closure area in Corona, California can expect delays of 3 to 4 hours.
According to Riverside County Transportation Commission Executive Director Anne Mayer, by fully closing the 91 Freeway, we will be able to consolidate these significant construction efforts into one weekend, rather than multiple weekends or extending this over a month of weeknights.
Commuters trying to go east or west from Orange County, California to Riverside County, California are encouraged to use State Route 60 throughout the weekend.
Commuters can also use Interstate 10 and Interstate 210 into San Bernardino County, California then take Interstate 15 south into Riverside County, California.
The goal is to reopen 91 Freeway in both directions by 4:00am PT on Monday, February 22nd, 2016.
