Caltrans as the delegated National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) agency has prepared a Draft Environmental Impact Statement on a proposal for a highway improvement project in Riverside County, California. The State Route 91 Corridor Improvement Project proposes to increase capacity on the State Route 91 and Interstate 15 in Riverside and Orange Counties. The State Route 91 Corridor Improvement Project proposes to widen existing SR–91 from the State Route 91/State Route 241 interchange in the Cities of Anaheim and Yorba Linda in Orange County to Pierce Street in the City of Riverside in Riverside County. The proposed project also includes improvements to Interstate 15 in Riverside County between the Interstate 15/Cajalco Road interchange in the City of Corona and the Interstate 15/Hidden Valley Parkway interchange in the Cities of Corona and Norco. The project limits on Interstate 15 begin at Cajalco Road, approximately 5 miles south of SR–91 and extend north on Interstate 15 to Hidden Valley Parkway, approximately 1 mile north of SR–91. The alternatives evaluated in the Draft Environmental Impact Statement are two Build Alternatives and a No Build Alternative. Both State Route 91 Corridor Improvement Project Build Alternatives would add one general purpose lane in each direction on the project segment of State Route 91. These lane additions would be continuous throughout the project limits. Both Build Alternatives would provide auxiliary lanes or collector-distributor roads at interchanges and would modify the existing interchange geometrics within the project limits to improve traffic operations. The Build Alternatives include upgrades to existing State Route 91 to standard shoulder, lane, and buffer widths where those upgrades can be accommodated. Alternative 1 would maintain one median high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) lane in each direction on State Route 91 within the project limits and proposes two HOV lane connectors: From eastbound State Route 91 to southbound Interstate 15 and from northbound Interstate 15 to westbound State Route 91. Alternative 1 would also add one HOV lane in each direction on Interstate 15 extending from the proposed HOV lane connectors south to Ontario Avenue. Alternative 2 proposes to convert the existing HOV lanes to two tolled express lanes in each direction on State Route-91 from the Orange/ Riverside County line to Interstate 15 including two express lane connectors: E:\FR\FM\26MYN1.SGM 26MYN1
