Westbound 91 Freeway To Close Nightly In Corona Starting Dec. 11

City News Service, News Partner

CORONA, CA — The westbound Riverside (91) Freeway is slated for a complete shutdown next week in Corona to facilitate overnight construction work, with ongoing closures planned for the rest of the month and the first half of January, officials said Tuesday.

The initial nighttime closure is scheduled for 10 p.m. Monday, with all westbound 91 lanes — including Express toll lanes — out of service from Interstate 15 to just beyond the Corona (71) Expressway, on the west end of Corona. The lane closures will be in effect until 4 a.m. Tuesday.

The same closures will be implemented again on Tuesday and Wednesday nights, according to RCTC.

The closures are analogous to shutdowns that occurred in October and November on the eastbound 91 for the "71/91 Interchange Project."

RCTC said the Monday-to-Wednesday schedule will be maintained, weather- permitting, to Jan. 17, though scheduling changes are expected to be implemented during the Christmas and New Year's holiday period.

In addition to the 91 closure, the transition bridges from south- and northbound I-15 to the westbound 91 will be closed during the work. That includes Express Lanes connectors.

The southbound 71 to the westbound 91 transition will have to be closed, as well, according to RCTC.

"The full closures will allow crews to safely continue construction of support structures for the new eastbound 91 to northbound 71 connector," the agency stated. "Weeknight traffic congestion is anticipated in Corona, and motorists are strongly advised to allow for extra travel time and to bypass the area by using Route 71 to the westbound Pomona (60) Freeway to the southbound Orange (57) Freeway to navigate around the closure."

Those attempting to enter Corona via the westbound 91 from Riverside will be detoured through downtown Corona.

The $137 million 71/91 Interchange Project, which got underway in February, entails replacing the current single-lane connector from the eastbound 91 to the 71 with a two-lane connector loop, which will accommodate a larger volume of vehicles at one time.

Along with expanding the connector itself, the interchange project further involves adding an eastbound auxiliary lane to the 91 and realigning the Green River on-ramp. The expressway, too, will be realigned to create space for the new connector.

Officials said a wildlife crossing will be one of the other features of the reconfigured interchange.

The project is expected to conclude sometime in 2025.

More than one-third of the project funding — $58.1 million — is being provided by the California Road Repair & Accountability Act of 2017, which hiked gasoline taxes to pay for infrastructure and other projects. The county's Measure A revenue, which is generated by a half-cent sales tax, is also covering a share of the expense, while federal and other sources make up the difference.

Updates on the project are available at rctc.org/7191closures and www.rctc.org/71-91interchange.

Latest addition to upscale medical and recreational cannabis dispensary footprint will offer a curated portfolio of products and a focus on customer service.

COSTA MESA, Calif., Nov. 30, 2023 /CNW/ - Gold Flora Corporation ("Gold Flora" or the "Company") (NEO: GRAM), a leading vertically-integrated California cannabis company, today announced the opening of the Company's 16th cannabis dispensary, located in Corona, California.

"With only 12 dispensary licenses granted in the city of Corona, this is sure to be a highly competitive market. Thanks to our vertically-integrated model, we have the ability to offer a unique, consistent selection of first-party products that will help King's Crew stand out and complement the most popular third-party brands. We are proud of this exciting new store and look forward to welcoming the public."

Sacramento-area counties move into CDC’s medium COVID-19 status level. Here’s what it means

The four counties in California’s capital region have been moved into a COVID-19 status tier that urges those at high risk of getting very sick to wear a high-quality mask or respirator, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, due to recent increases in virus hospitalization numbers.

Sacramento, Placer, Yolo and El Dorado counties are now listed in the “yellow” (or medium) status tier based on COVID-19 hospitalization rates from data collected by the CDC through Dec. 2, the most recent data available for counties in California.

The CDC data shows the four-county region had a 29% increase in hospitalized COVID patients on Dec. 2 compared to Nov. 25. Only those four California counties are listed in the yellow tier, according to the CDC; all others are in the “green” (low) tier. No California counties were listed in the “orange” status tier (high) as of Monday.

The California Department of Public Health respiratory virus dashboard, which includes separate charts for COVID-19 and influenza, now displays only weekly updates on hospitalizations at the statewide level, no longer including county-level hospital numbers.

The most recent update from CDPH shows the number of hospital patients with COVID-19 in California on a steady rise, up to 1,592 patients on Dec. 2 from 1,151 one month earlier.

The California hospital data chart that shows county figures and remains posted online, but is no longer being actively updated, shows the number of patients with COVID-19 in Sacramento County climbed to 81 on Dec. 2 from 49 on Sept. 27. In Placer County, that total rose to 52 on Dec. 2 from 37 on Sept. 29. This most recent data shows Yolo County with five patients with COVID-19 in hospitals, and four in El Dorado County.

COVID-19 test positivity rate data for California is no longer available for each county — only statewide. California reported a 8.8% test positivity rate through Dec. 4, which is a 1.1-point increase from the previous week and has been on a steady climb since it was 6.1% on Nov. 2, according to CDPH.

Sacramento, Placer, Yolo and El Dorado counties were listed in the green status tier (or low) throughout October and November before recently ticking back up to the yellow tier.

Along with the mask recommendation for those at high risk of getting very sick, residents in counties in the yellow tier should consider self-testing for COVID-19 and wearing a high-quality mask when indoors and coming into contact with those at high risk of getting very sick, according to federal health officials.

The CDC said people may choose to mask at any time, and people with symptoms, a positive test or exposure to someone with COVID-19 should wear a high-quality mask or respirator when indoors in a public space.

The CDC places counties into the yellow tier once their rate of new weekly hospital admissions with COVID-19 exceeds 10 per 100,000 residents, and into the orange tier above 20 per 100,000. CDC data showed the four-county Sacramento region at a hospitalization rate of 10.5 per 100,000, up from 8.2 per 100,000 the previous week and reaching its highest point since late September.

Nationwide, 75% of counties remained as of Monday within the green hospitalization tier, 21% were in yellow and less than 4% were in orange.

The California Independent System Operator (or ISO), which maintains the state’s power grid, on Monday activated COVID-19 screening protocols for its buildings in response to Sacramento, Placer, Yolo and El Dorado counties moving into the yellow tier.

Visitors at California ISO buildings, along with staff attending in-person meetings with external visitors, will need to acknowledge they have tested negative for COVID-19 within 24 hours of being on site. Test kits will be available upon arrival, if needed.

East 91 Freeway In Corona Closing 3 Nights A Week Through November

RIVERSIDE COUNTY, CA — Beginning next week and continuing through November, the eastbound Riverside (91) Freeway in Corona will be shut down during the overnight hours, three days a week, for work on an interchange improvement project.The nighttime closures are slated to get underway on Monday, Oct. 16, with all eastbound 91 lanes out of service from Green River Road to Serfas Club Drive, on the west end of Corona.The lane closures will be in effect from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. The same closures will be implemented again on Tue...

RIVERSIDE COUNTY, CA — Beginning next week and continuing through November, the eastbound Riverside (91) Freeway in Corona will be shut down during the overnight hours, three days a week, for work on an interchange improvement project.

The nighttime closures are slated to get underway on Monday, Oct. 16, with all eastbound 91 lanes out of service from Green River Road to Serfas Club Drive, on the west end of Corona.

The lane closures will be in effect from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. The same closures will be implemented again on Tuesday, Oct. 17, and Wednesday, Oct. 18, according to the Riverside County Transportation Commission.

The agency said that the Monday-to-Wednesday schedule will be maintained, weather-permitting, to Nov. 30.

In addition to the general purpose lanes, the two toll lanes on the eastbound 91 will be shut down at the same time.

RCTC officials plan to hold a Zoom news briefing on Wednesday afternoon to provide further details.

The closures are required for the "71/91 Interchange Project," which entails replacing the current single-lane connector from the eastbound 91 to the Corona (71) Expressway with a two-lane connector loop, which will facilitate a larger volume of vehicles at one time, reducing congestion.

The $137 million project got underway in February.

RCTC said in a statement that the nighttime closures will "allow crews to safely construct support structures for the new connector."

The Green River Road on-ramp to the eastbound 91 will also have to be shut down for traffic safety during the work.

RCTC recommended that motorists avoid the eastbound 91 during the overnight hours Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, starting next week, and instead utilize the Pomona (60) Freeway to the north as an alternate. Otherwise, traffic will be crammed into a single lane, taken off the freeway at Green River Road and funneled through the city to downtown, where drivers can rejoin the eastbound 91.

Along with expanding the connector itself, the 71/91 Interchange Project will also involve adding an eastbound auxiliary lane to the 91 and realigning the Green River Road on-ramp. The expressway, too, will be realigned to create space for the new connector.

Officials said that a wildlife crossing will be one of the other features of the reconfigured interchange.

The project is expected to conclude sometime in 2025.

More than one-third of the project funding — $58.1 million — is being provided by the California Road Repair & Accountability Act of 2017, which hiked gasoline taxes to pay for infrastructure and other projects. The county's Measure A revenue, which is generated by a half-cent sales tax, is also covering a share of the expense, while federal and other sources make up the difference.

Eastbound 91 Freeway Full Closure Starts Monday Evening In Corona

CORONA, CA — The eastbound Riverside (91) Freeway is slated to be shut down Monday evening in Corona for construction work, with similar closures planned Tuesday and Wednesday nights, and motorists were advised to consider alternate routes to avoid lengthy delays.

"Motorists traveling eastbound are encouraged to avoid the area by using the northbound 57 to eastbound 60 to southbound 71 as routes to get around the closure," according to a Riverside County Transportation Commission statement.

The initial nighttime closure is scheduled to get underway at 11 p.m. Monday, with all eastbound 91 lanes out of service from Green River Road to Serfas Club Drive, on the west end of Corona. The lane closures will be in effect until 5 a.m. Tuesday. The same closures will be implemented again on Tuesday and Wednesday nights, according to RCTC.

The agency said the Monday-to-Wednesday schedule will be maintained, weather-permitting, to the last week of November.

In addition to all general purpose lanes, the two toll lanes on the eastbound 91 will be shut down at the same time.

The closures are required for the "71/91 Interchange Project," which entails replacing the current single-lane connector from the eastbound 91 to the Corona (71) Expressway with a two-lane connector loop, which will facilitate a larger volume of vehicles at one time, reducing congestion.

The $137 million project got underway in February.

"Full closures will allow for the safe construction of support structures that will extend across the entire width of the 91," RCTC said. "To achieve height clearance on the 91, the structures will reach approximately 30 feet high. Crews will also be placing beams across the 91 that will measure about 120 feet long and weigh 18 tons each. More than 200 beams will be placed over the freeway, forming a tunnel-like structure, which will be used to support the new bridge while it is being constructed."

The Green River Road on-ramp to the eastbound 91 will also have to be shut down during the work.

Officials said that motorists who choose to use the eastbound 91 and enter Corona from Orange County will be crammed into a single lane, taken off the freeway at Green River and funneled through the city to downtown, where drivers can rejoin the eastbound 91.

"Drivers who need to reach Green River Road, or choose to use the local detour, should plan for heavy delays," RCTC said.

The Pomona (60) Freeway will be the more viable eastbound route to get around the closure, according to officials.

Along with expanding the connector itself, the 71/91 Interchange Project further involves adding an eastbound auxiliary lane to the 91 and realigning the Green River on-ramp. The expressway, too, will be realigned to create space for the new connector.

Officials said a wildlife crossing will be one of the other features of the reconfigured interchange.
