    About the Project
    Located between Ramona Expy. to the north and Nuevo Rd. to the south, the I-215 Placentia Interchange is designed to meet the needs of the area’s growing population. The project will add northbound and southbound ramps, realign E. Frontage Rd., widen the Placentia overcrossing, and add lanes from Harvill Ave. to Indian Ave. RCTC expects to open the interchange in summer 2022. This interchange is Construction Contract #1 of RCTC’s Mid County Parkway Project, which will provide a new 16-mile east-west route between Perris and San Jacinto.
