Van Buren Widening

Project Overview

The Riverside County Transportation Department, in cooperation with the City of Riverside, is proposing to widen Van Buren Boulevard from approximately King Avenue eastward to Bountiful Street, a total distance of approximately 2.5 miles. The purpose of the proposed project is to improve traffic operations within the project corridor. The project would widen Van Buren Boulevard from four lanes to six lanes and include right-turn pockets at major intersections. Existing sidewalk, driveways, and curb returns would be reconstructed in compliance with the current accessibility standards. The proposed project would also require relocation of existing utilities. 

The project will include the following:

  • Widening of lanes from 4 to 6

  • Construction of bus turnouts

  • Construction of new sidewalk and curb & gutter where necessary

  • Construction of driveways and driveway approaches where necessary

  • Milling and overlay of roadway

  • Adjustment and/or relocation of utilities
