RCTC plans to use the design-build model to extend the lanes eight miles from the Orange County line to the I-15 in Riverside. The toll facility currently stretches 10 miles from the Costa Mesa Freeway (SR-55) to the county line. Pending the approval of funding, construction is anticipated to begin in 2013 with the lanes open in 2017.

OCTA bought the 91 Express Lanes in 2003 from the private company that built them. The purchase removed a non-compete clause that prevented improvements to the adjacent freeway and to date, nearly $15 million from 91 Express Lanes revenue has gone to improve the Riverside Freeway (SR-91).

“The 91 Express Lanes is a model nationwide for providing drivers with a free-flowing traffic option and the extension of the lanes will help improve the critical link between our two counties,” said OCTA Director and Third District Supervisor Bill Campbell.

The 91 Express Lanes averages 32,000 drivers a day and in a customer satisfaction survey completed last month, 90 percent of customers said they were satisfied with their experience using the lanes.
