City and county team up on bridge widening project
Perris Boulevard Bridge over Perris Valley Storm Drain Lateral “B”

The City of Moreno Valley and Riverside County Flood Control & Water Conservation District (RCFC&WCD) are jointly funding the widening of the Perris Boulevard Bridge over Perris Valley Storm Drain Lateral “B” (also known as the Oleander Channel). The bridge will be widened from a two-lane width to a six-lane width, while the channel will be both widened and deepened.

The widening of the bridge will greatly benefit the community by improving the current and future traffic flow on Perris Boulevard. The channel widening will enhance flood protection benefits within the City.

Both Measure “A” and Area Drainage Fees (ADF) fund the bridge improvements, while channel improvements are primarily funded by ADF. Construction is estimated to take place between mid-July and mid-October 2004.

The anticipated work will require temporary lane closures and detours during working hours. Commuters are advised to take precautionary measures in these areas.
