The Inland area is about to get overwhelmed with work on overpasses and underpasses, as local transportation planners race to finish about a half-billion dollars of projects before state deadline.
As part of the Prop. 1B transportation program voters approved in 2006, all projects funded through the Trade Corridors Improvement Fund must start construction by the end of 2013.
With less than 15 months to go, 14 overpass or underpass projects in Riverside County and San Bernardino County have not started construction. But officials remain optimistic they can get workers on the job by the end of next year on most, if not all, the overpasses and underpasses.
