I-15 Corridor Improvement Project (CIP) Caltrans EA 0J080

The I-15 Corridor Improvement Project will add two Toll Express lanes and one general purpose lane in each direction from SR-74 to SR-60 and one HOV Lane from I-215 to SR-74.The project, which is sponsored by RCTC, has an estimated cost of $1.7 billion.

The Southstar Project Manager, leading the Caltrans oversight team, has been working expeditiously with RCTC for the past 3 years to complete the PA&ED phase. The Draft Environmental Document is scheduled to be circulated in late Summer of this year.

Project challenges include setting up the Caltrans organizational structure and document controls needed to address the large amount of paperwork that is generated on this enormous project. Other challenges include scope changes resulting from funding shortages, negotiations with regulatory and local agencies, coordination with 30 to 40 other Caltrans and local projects within the limits of this project, and coordination with FHWA.
