Caltrans is urging motorists to avoid the 91 Freeway in Corona tonight, Saturday, September 13th, because of construction work that will close the eastbound lanes of the highway at Green River Road between 11 p.m. and 9 a.m.
“There will be a high volume of construction trucks and other equipment going in there at night to work on the bridge,” said Shelli Lombardo, a Caltrans spokeswoman for Riverside County. Motorists are advised to avoid the area. Otherwise, they will be rerouted and are likely to experience delays of more than two hours, she said.
Lombardo suggested using the 10 and 60 freeways as alternatives. Those traveling from Orange County are advised to take the 57 Freeway north to the 60 or 10, then take the 15 Freeway south to connect to the 91 eastbound.
Only Corona residents will be allowed through the area, to get to their homes at Green River Road, she said. For additional information and future freeway closures, please visit www.caltrans8.info.
Please drive defensively and courteously!
