Skanska this week signed a $120m contract to revamp a major highway interchange in the city of Corona in Riverside County, southern California.
The State Route 71/91 Interchange Improvement Project is designed to improve safety, enhance traffic flow, and improve accessibility in the county’s most heavily traveled corridor.
Skanska will build a new, direct connector ramp to replace the existing single-lane connector between eastbound SR91 and northbound SR71.
It will also build a new, separate auxiliary lane from Green River Road, and realign the eastbound SR91 on-ramp.
“Completing this project will provide welcome relief for our residents, especially those returning to Riverside County during afternoon hours on eastbound 91,” said Bob Magee, chair of the Riverside County Transportation Commission.
The project is expected to be completed in 2025.
