The Mid County Parkway is a proposed 16-mile transportation corridor that will relieve traffic congestion for east-west travel in western Riverside County between the San Jacinto and Perris areas and help address future transportation needs through 2040.
The Riverside County Transportation Commission (RCTC), the agency responsible for transportation in Riverside County and the administrator of Measure A (Riverside County’s ˝ cent sales tax for transportation), has completed the environmental studies for the modified alternatives for the Project.
The Recirculated Draft Environmental Impact Report/Supplemental Draft Environmental Impact Statement (Recirculated Draft EIR/Supplemental Draft EIS) describes alternatives for the project, the impacts from each of the alternatives, and the proposed avoidance, minimization and/or mitigation measures for these impacts. The studies are available on this website under “Library/Links.”
RCTC, as the Lead Agency under CEQA, has prepared additional quantitative analyses of potential air quality and greenhouse gas emissions and climate change effects of the MCP Build Alternatives and has revised four parts of Chapter 4.0, California Environmental Quality Act Evaluation from the EIR to incorporate those additional analyses.
The preparation of the revised sections of Chapter 4 of the Recirculated Draft EIR is complete and was released to the public on January 31, 2014. The review and comment period of the revised sections for the MCP project is 45 days. Electronic copies of the revised sections of Chapter 4 are available on this website under “Library/Links.” This is in addition to the copies of the revised sections that have been made available at RCTC, FHWA, Caltrans and local libraries. A listing of locations are available on this website under “Library/Links.”

Following the comment period, a Final Environmental Impact Report/Environmental Impact Statement (Final EIR/EIS) will be prepared that includes responses to the comments on the January 2013 RDEIR/SDEIS and the revised sections of Chapter 4 of the RDEIR released on January 31,2014. The Final EIR/EIS will also identify a preferred alternative.
