State Route 71/91 highway in Riverside, California, to be improved and expanded

A contract has been awarded for the expansion and improvement of State Route 71/91 highway in Riverside, California. The US$120 million contract was awarded to Skanska USA.

The Swedish developer and contractor’s American subsidiary will upgrade the busy corridor’s accessibility, traffic flow, and safety. The project will replace a one-lane connection between State Road 91 and State Route 71. This is located in the eastbound direction with a two-lane direct connecting ramp.

Furthermore, a new auxiliary lane will also be built from Green River Road to the east of the interchange. To improve access to the intersection, the project also includes realigning the eastbound State Route 91 on-ramp from Green River Road.

In 2025, the project is anticipated to be finished.

Remarks on the expansion and improvement of State Route 71/91 highway in Riverside

Skanska stated that the only industry where future expectations have increased as compared to the prior period is nonresidential construction in the United States. This was during the company’s most recent results call in February.

For instance, Skanska secured numerous current project wins in the United States. These include a $480 million bus depot in Queens, New York. Additionally, they secured an $83.6 million life sciences facility project for George Mason University in Virginia. Skanska also won the $167 million Brooklyn Bridge renovation project in November.

As the contractor works on more civil projects in the states, CEO Anders Danielsson found it “encouraging” to see the government funding from the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act beginning to produce projects. Bob Magee, chair of the Riverside County Transportation Commission, “Completing this project will give much-needed respite for our people. This is especially those returning to Riverside County during afternoon hours on eastbound 91.”
