TEMECULA PARKWAY INTERCHANGE PROJECT GROUNDBREAKING CEREMONY

News – City

Posted on: June 5, 2017

Ground Breaking on the Temecula Parkway Interchange Project Tuesday June 6, 2017

On Tuesday, June 6th at 10:00 am the City of Temecula will break ground on the long awaited Interstate 15/State Route 79 South (Temecula Parkway) Ultimate Interchange project. The project will reconfigure the on and off ramps to/from southbound I-15.  A new auxiliary lane and continuous movement looping off-ramp will allow southbound motorists to exit southbound I-15 and head east on Temecula Parkway without stopping.  The new onramp to southbound I-15 will align with Old Town Front Street.  Improvements also include widening Temecula Parkway between Bedford Court and the freeway, as well as making improvements to the northbound on and off ramps.

Once completed, the project will improve traffic flow entering and exiting the freeway, by eliminating the ever-present line of vehicles waiting to exit southbound I-15 and by throttling traffic entering the freeway with ramp meters and HOV lanes added to the on ramps.

Construction is estimated to take 18 months to complete.  The improvements will be constructed in phases to keep traffic flowing through the project site.  In an effort to keep residents and motorists informed of traffic pattern changes and progress, project status updates will be issued via the City’s Facebook page, the project website at 1579south.info and the project hotline at (866) 679-4900.

The groundbreaking ceremony will take place on Tuesday June 6, 2017 at 10:00 am at the Park and Ride dirt lot located on Temecula Parkway and Old Town Front Street, the event is open to the public.
