I-15 / LIMONITE AVENUE INTERCHANGE PROJECT
PROPOSED IMPROVEMENTSThe County of Riverside is proposing to improve theLimonite Interchange on Interstate 15.The improvements consist of a new8-lane overcrossing, 3 throughlanes in each direction plus 2turn lanes, widening of the o-rampsfrom 2 to 4 lanes, the addition of 2 new loopon-ramps, and widening of Limonite Avenue to4 lanes in each direction between Hamner Avenueand Wineville Avenue.
Estimated Construction Cost: $48 Million
EXISTING CONDITION/NEEDLimonite Avenue is an east-west arterial roadway between Hamner Avenue and Wineville Avenue. West of the I-15 Interchange area, Limonite Avenue is a five-lane facility with three WB and two EB lanes. East of the interchange, Limonite Avenue is a four-lane facility with two WB and two EB lanes. In 2006, interim improvements to the interchange were made to widen the ramps and restripe the overcrossing to provide dual left turn lanes at the on-ramps. At that time, it was acknowledged that additional improvements would be needed to accommodate long range trac forecasts. The Cities of Eastvale and Jurupa Valley are expected to grow and add new residences and businesses in the upcoming years, resulting in substantial trac and circulation issues. The proposed I-15/Limonite Avenue interchange improvements are needed to alleviate the trac congestion associated with the current and planned development.
