15/91 Connector Project Facts

PROJECT OVERVIEW

The Riverside County Transportation Commission (RCTC) is preparing to build the 15/91 Express Lanes Connector, which will link the future southbound 15 Express Lanes to the westbound 91 Express Lanes and link the eastbound 91 Express Lanes to the future northbound 15 Express Lanes. The 15/91 Express Lanes connector is designed to provide a seamless transition between these Riverside County tolling systems for reliable, convenient travel for vehicles and express buses.

This connector is part of RCTC’s Interstate 15 Express Lanes Project, which is currently under construction. However, the projects have separate funding sources, and the new 15 Express Lanes will be open before the connector is completed. The $180 million connector is funded by Senate Bill (SB) 132. SB 132 provided $427 million for five projects known as the Riverside County Transportation Efficiency Corridor, including the 15/91 Express Lanes Connector.
