I215 Newport Road Interchange

I-215/Newport Road Interchange Improvement Project

Project Overview

The County of Riverside, in cooperation with the City of Menifee and Caltrans, reconstructed the previous interchange located on Interstate 215 (I-215) at Newport Road in the City of Menifee.  The improvements reconstructed the previous diamond interchange into a partial cloverleaf interchange configuration, with northbound and southbound loop on-ramps.  The existing bridge was widened to accommodate six through lanes of traffic, deceleration lanes approaching the loop on-ramps, outside shoulders that will be used as bike lanes and a sidewalk on the north side of the bridge.  On the mainline freeway, acceleration lanes were added to the direct on-ramps and a deceleration lane was added to the northbound off-ramp.  The northbound freeway bridge over Salt Creek was widened to accommodate the northbound on-ramp acceleration lane.


Construction start: April 2015
