Safer Roads - CajalcoReply: Hugh
Can there be any person that would not want safer driving along Cajalco Road, especially toward the 15 freeway? Every morning, without exception, there are drivers that make ironic passes across double yellow lines in an attempt to save a few seconds of travel time. Is there anything more ignorant? Widen the road? That would help. But how do you get fools off the road? Simple - extensive patrol by law enforcement.

Cajalco Widening Scoping Meetings Tonight and TomorrowReply: Tonette
Just a reminder about the below mentioned Cajalco widening scoping meetings being held tonight (at 6pm, Lake Mathews Elem., 12252 Blackburn Rd) and tomorrow night (Tomas Rivera Middle School, 21625 Martin Street, between Markham and Cajalco, also 6pm). This is to get our input about Cajalco being widened, and the possible new routes it would take through our area. Toni Sapiano

Cajalco Road Widening ProjectPost: Paula Vice
Cajalco Road Widening Project
Cajalco Road Widening Project
Environmental Impact Statement
The California Department of Transportation (CALTRANS), in
cooperation with the County of Riverside (County), proposes to widen
Cajalco Road from two to four lanes between Harvill Avenue at the east
end and Temescal Canyon Road at the west end, from four to five
lanes between Temescal Wash and Temescal Canyon Road, and from
four to six lanes between the Interstate 215 (I-215) southbound ramps
and Harvill Avenue. The purpose of the proposed project is to: 1)
improve the transportation facility to address anticipated growth and
mobility needs, as identified in the County of Riverside General Plan
Circulation Element Policy 1.5; 2) provide improved interregional travel
by improving east-west mobility in Riverside County; and 3) improve
roadway alignment and intersection design to enhance safety along
Cajalco Road. A preferred alternative has not been selected at this
point. Two build alternatives and a No-Build Alternative are being
considered and will be evaluated in an environmental impact statement
(EIS). Build Alternative 1 would widen existing Cajalco Road with minor
alignment changes between I-215 and Temescal Canyon Road. Build
Alternative 2 would widen existing Cajalco Road between I-215 and
Hollis Lane and between east of Eagle Canyon Road and Temescal
Canyon Road, would construct a new segment of Cajalco Road
between Hollis Lane and east of Eagle Canyon Road, and would
include a southerly extension of La Sierra Avenue.
