I-215 & 74 Interchange
Work is set to begin in June on a new bridge and freeway interchange at the I-215/ & 74 Highway intersection in Perris that City officials say will spur commercial development, improve traffic flow, upgrade access to the Downtown business district and enhance the quality of life for residents.
The $25 million project replaces an existing two-lane bridge with a new four-lane structure over Highway 74, which is known as Fourth Street in Perris.
The new bridge structure will provide dual turn lanes leading to widened and realigned on ramps to I-215. It will replace 12 existing stop signs with signalized ramps to improve traffic flow through a Downtown Perris undergoing major renovations.
Work on the project is expected to take two years.
“We have been trying to improve this intersection for a decade,” said Perris Mayor Daryl Busch. “We are finally at the go point. It will alleviate the congestion that we have throughout our central core area.
