City of Jurupa Valley Etiwanda Avenue/Country Village Road Truck Restriction Ordinance
NOP - Notice of Preparation
Present Land Use
The proposed project is the adoption of a city ordinance prohibiting medium-heavy-and heavy-heavy-duty trucks with gross vehicle weight rating over 16,000 lbs from accessing Etiwanda Ave between SR-60 and Hopkins St and Country Village Rd between SR -60 and Philadelphia Ave in the city of Jurupa Valley.
Evaluation and consideration of the proposed truck restriction ordinance is a requirement of a settlement agreement based on a 2011 lawsuit filed by the Center for Community Action and Environmental Justice challenging the county of Riverside's approval of the Mira Loma Commerce Center. The city of Jurupa Valley is subject to the settlement agreement.
Based upon the Consent Judgement, the city agreed to comply with specific settlement terms. On Feb 20, 2014, the city initiated traffic studies on Etiwanda Ave from SR-60 to Hopkins St. Info concerning the traffic studies was presented at the city council meeting of Dec 4, 2014. Pursuant to requirements outlined by Caltrans, it was noted that a diversion of trucks to other roadways would need further study to identify potential impacts of noise and air quality. Implementing truck restrictions would also require support from adjoining communities.
On Feb 5, 2015, additional study work for traffic, air, and noise were initiated. The findings presented on May 5, 2016 revealed truck restrictions along Etiwanda Ave would also cause impacts to residents along Country Village Rd, north of SR 60. The truck restriction route was expanded to include Country Village Rd between SR 60 and Philadelphia Ave.
