SR60 Truck Lanes Project - Construction Grading Progress

Both westbound and a single eastbound lane will be closed on State Route 60 in the Bandlands, from Saturday, October 12 at 4 a.m. to Sunday, October 13 at 8 p.m. The closure will take place between the 10/60 Interchange and Gillman Springs Road to allow crews to remove large rocks from the project hillside. 

Project Overview

The 60 Truck Lanes Project will widen 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 efficiency and to reduce traffic congestion.  Click here to view project videos.
