The Foothill/Eastern Transportation Corridor Agency (F/ETCA) is working with Caltrans, the Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) and Riverside County Transportation Authority (RCTC) on the project. Agreements to document roles and responsibilities for funding, delivery and operation of the project are under development by this multi-agency team.
The project’s planned construction is aligned with other planned improvements in the area including the 15/91 Express Lanes Connector, State Route 91 Corridor Operations Project and the 71/91 Interchange Project.
Initial build-out of The Toll Road system (including the 241 Toll Road) was completed in the late 1990s. In 1994, the 241/91 Express Connector Project was approved as an identified and anticipated future improvement project.
