- County Line Road and Calimesa Boulevard Road Improvements
- The City of Calimesa and the City of Yucaipa (Project Applicants) are proposing road improvements on the intersection of County Line Road and Calimesa Boulevard Road (Project). The Project entails widening portions of the roads at the intersection of County Line Road and Calimesa Boulevard, removing the existing traffic light signals and replacing them with a roundabout, and completing minor sidewalk and drainage improvements as required. The Project ’s preliminary engineering and right of way acquisition is expected to be funded partially through the Federal Highway Administration through the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient, Transportation Act Equity – A legacy for Users and requires coordination with Caltrans. The proposed improvements will dovetail with the improvements further east along County Line Road that are part of the County Line Road Transportation Corridor project, funded through the Local Partnership Program, a State-level funding plan. National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) analysis and documentation for this Project has been conducted and resulted in a Categorical Exclusion. The Project, which addresses traffic congestion and safety, is within the Counties of Riverside (to the south of County Line Road) and San Bernardino (to the north of County Line Road). The Project’s proposed improvements will disturb approximately four (4) acres. County Line Road and Calimesa Boulevard improvements would include pavement widening, curbs, gutters and sidewalks adjacent to the properties at the southwest corner of the County Line Road/Calimesa Boulevard intersection as necessary to close gaps in the existing curbs, gutters and sidewalks. The proposed roundabout would be approximately 82-feet (FT) in diameter with an inscribed circle diameter of 184-FT and would replace the existing traffic light signals at the County Line Road/Calimesa Boulevard intersection. The Project would also include widening at all adjacent corners of the intersection required for transitioning to curbs, gutters and sidewalks. New pavement stripes and markings would be proposed to achieve four lanes of traffic including the center two-way left-turn lane within Project site. The Project requires roadway easement acquisitions from three parcels and full or partial takes from three parcels within the Project site. The acquisitions proposed would be used for public right-of-way improvements such as roadways, drainage, gutter, and/or sidewalk features. Easement and property takes will be acquired by each City, respectively. During construction, detours will be provided for pedestrians and vehicular traffic to travel to and from their destination around the construction area(s).
