What is the Mid County Parkway?
The Mid County Parkway is a proposed 16-mile transportation corridor designed to relieve east-west traffic congestion in the San Jacinto and Perris areas and help address transportation needs through 2040.
A new east-west route is proposed between Interstate 215 and State Route 79.
Why is the Mid County Parkway Needed?
Major transportation routes in southwestern Riverside County are experiencing significant traffic congestion. Traffic volumes near the proposed Mid County Parkway are projected to double in some segments and triple in other segments.
A new east-west transportation link is essential to reduce traffic congestion and enhance the quality of life for the area.
The Mid County Parkway will connect to State Route 79, Interstate 215, and multimodal bus and rail facilities that support Metrolink's 91/Perris Valley Line.
