Slow down! The speed limit has decreased to 55 mph through the project area. New speed limit signs have been posted and the California Highway Patrol has increased patrols, due to speeding in the area. Please note that traffic fines are doubled in construction areas. 

Plan ahead! One lane on westbound Route 60 will be closed for approximately six months, starting in late August. Please expect delays, allow extra travel time, and avoid the area by using interstate 10 as an alternate route. Watch for updates regarding the start of this lane closure.

The 60 Truck Lanes Project is widening a 4.5-mile section of State Route 60 between Gilman Springs Road and 1.4 miles west of Jack Rabbit Trail through unincorporated Riverside County’s Badlands between Moreno Valley and Beaumont. The project lies within mountainous terrain with a curving alignment and steep grades. The project is designed to improve safety and reduce traffic congestion. The new lanes are expected to open in late 2021.
