According to a recent article in The Californian, that I-215 freeway widening will be done only up to Scott Road, with no plans to widen into Menifee...
But because of the sharp decline, that's as far as I-215 improvements will go. Roberts said there is no money on hand to continue widening the highway north of Scott.
Widening to six lanes will be done through Murrieta, but as soon as the 215 hits the Menifee city limits, it'll bottleneck back into four lanes. And it'll be 2013 by the time that gets done.
Originally the plans were to widen the 215 to six lanes all the way to Nuevo Road in Perris. But falling Measure A revenues have derailed that.
"So all we're going to do, by doing this expansion down here, is shift the stop-and-go traffic further north," Roberts said. "But I guess that's better than nothing."
Yeah, I guess so.
