RIVERSIDE: Officials approve plan to correct I-215 bottleneck

A bottleneck that has frustrated downtown Riverside commuters for years could be fixed, starting early next year, when officials widen a heavily used section of southbound Interstate 215.

Riverside County Transportation officials on Thursday approved a plan to spend $2 million to widen the southbound side of the freeway — also Highway 60 eastbound — from Blaine Street to Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.

The section, a 1.3 mile stretch east of the 60/91/215 interchange, commonly backs up because the freeway decreases to three general-use lanes between Blaine and University Avenue, before opening back up to four lanes all the way to the 60/215 split near Moreno Valley.
