Ethanac Expressway

Project Overview

he Riverside County Transportation Department is conducting studies for the Ethanac Expressway Project, which would connect the Cities of Hemet, San Jacinto, Menifee, Perris and Lake Elsinore and the unincorporated communities of Winchester, Homeland, Romoland, Good Hope, Meadowbrook and Warm Springs.

This proposed project would provide a new east-west, interregional route to serve southwestern Riverside County. Feedback received from the public and various stakeholders will help develop the Corridor Vision and identify areas for further study. Findings from the Corridor Vision study will guide the design of the proposed roadway and confirm that the design is compatible with the standards of local jurisdictions and the future land uses for these areas. The Corridor Vision may include recommendations for:

  • Number of lanes

  • Intersection spacing

  • Bicycle lanes and routes

  • Bus stop routes and stops

  • Future public transit routes

  • Pedestrian uses

  • Multi-trail uses

Please note that no decisions have been made at this time regarding the future roadway alignment. Based on feedback received from the community, a variety of alignment alternatives will be presented for public and agency consideration and for detailed study. The map below provides a broad look at the proposed project study area, and conceptual alignment.
