NORTH COUNTY–The newly-improved Park and Ride lot located just north of State Route 76 has reopen to the public.
The temporary Park and Ride, located just south of SR-76 will continue to be available until November 3.
“The newly improved Park & Ride lot is the last component of the SR 76 East Segment project, which included adding lanes to SR 76 and the reconfiguration of the I-15/SR 76 interchange,” said Acting Caltrans District 11 Director Cory Binns. “Together, these infrastructure improvements have improved traffic flow and eased congestion for travelers in the region.”
Bus service for Riverside Transit Authority Route 202 will return to the improved Park and Ride location, and service to the temporary lot will be discontinued as of November 1.
“With nearly double the parking capacity and new amenities, including electric vehicle charging stations, the new park & ride offers carpoolers and transit riders a convenient place to meet or catch a bus,” said County Supervisor and SANDAG Board Chair Ron Roberts. “It also enhances motorist and pedestrian safety with new sidewalks and paving on Old Highway 395 and a traffic signal.” County officials have also implemented daily car park cleaning due to hygiene and safety protocols.
The Park and Ride lot is part of the SR 76 East Segment Project – the last in a series of transportation improvements in the corridor – funded in part by the TransNet regional half-cent sales tax.
