  • RCTC Mid County Parkway Placentia Interchange Project Kicks Off Construction

    Construction starting on I-215 Placentia Interchange
     
    The Riverside County Transportation Commission (RCTC) is starting work this week on the Interstate 215 Placentia Avenue Interchange in Perris. Crews are installing signs, protecting stormwater systems, and clearing brush from near the roadway. Please slow down, allow extra time, watch for crews and equipment, be alert to changing conditions, follow detours, and stay informed by checking construction updates, social media, and mapping apps.
     
    Please forward this information to a relative, coworker, neighbor, or friend and ask them to sign up for weekly Construction Updates by visiting the “Contact Us” section of rctc.org/placentia
     
    About the Project
    Located between Ramona Expressway to the north and Nuevo Road 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 East Frontage Road, widen the Placentia overcrossing, and add lanes from Harvill Avenue to Indian Avenue. 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.
