Sunset Avenue was opened to the public on March, 9, 2016 following the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony.
The City of Banning and the Riverside County Transportation Department constructed a vehicle underpass to separate vehicle traffic from train traffic at the Sunset Avenue railroad crossing with the Union Pacific Railroad (UPRR) tracks. The Sunset Avenue railroad crossing was at street level. The project lowered Sunset Avenue in order to provide sufficient vertical clearance between the roadway and existing railroad tracks. A new railroad bridge structure was built, and Sunset reconstructed to maintain two existing through-lanes in each direction with added sidewalks for pedestrian circulation. Construction also included modifications to the adjacent Interstate 10 interchange, and the existing on-ramps and off-ramps were adjusted to meet the new grade. The new ramps were built within the same general alignment as the previous ramps.
