Cajalco Road Interim Safety Project

Project Improvements

The Riverside County Transportation Department is proposing the construction of a center turn lane (two-way turn lane) along Cajalco Road from Brown Street to Day Street, in Riverside County, California. The proposed project will transition back to the existing cross section to the west of Brown Street and to the east of Day Street. The intersections of Brown Street, Clark Street, and Day Street will be modified to accommodate the improvements. Construction will include new pavement, striping modifications, signing modifications, relocation of electric and transmission electric distribution lines to allow for the improvements, as needed, bus stops at the major intersections, limited Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant sidewalks at the Clark Street intersection, and the relocation of existing traffic signals at Brown Street and Clark Street. The project is needed to improve safety and traffic operations by eliminating the hazards and inefficiencies of turning movements associated with vehicular traffic on Cajalco Road and intersections of Cajalco Road with Brown Street, Clark Street, and Day Street.
