Day Street Widening Project
Street being widened from westbound State Route 60 ramps
to Box Springs Road/Ironwood Avenue

The cities of Moreno Valley and Riverside are jointly participating in the Day Street Widening Project between the State Route 60 (SR 60) undercrossing and Box Springs Road/Ironwood Avenue. The purpose of the project is to relieve traffic congestion by widening Day Street to two lanes in each direction. Work consists of installation of a new traffic signal at the intersection of Day Street/SR 60 westbound ramps. Work also includes pavement widening and rehabilitation; new curb, gutter, and sidewalk; extension of existing drainage facilities; new retaining wall; new signing and striping; and related items.

Construction bids are scheduled to be opened on August 11, 2004. Construction work is anticipated to begin in mid-September 2004, with an estimated duration of four months. During construction, one travel lane in each direction will remain open at all times.

The City of Moreno Valley is proportionately sharing the cost with the City of Riverside. The major improvements lie within the jurisdictions of Caltrans, the City of Riverside, and the City of Moreno Valley.
