Tired of Green River? Try Lincoln
Are you tired of sitting on Green River watching the State Route 91 (SR-91) traffic fly by you while you wait to get on? What if taking Lincoln Avenue could get you on to the freeway quicker? The City of Corona Public Works Department encourages you to give it a try!
The Traffic Engineering team has re-timed the S. Lincoln Avenue corridor during the morning commute from Foothill to the SR-91 westbound on-ramp to decrease your time traveling northbound on city streets in the hopes of getting you on to the freeway sooner.
The traffic signals have been synchronized to strongly favor northbound traffic in the mornings. If you safely travel the speed limit which changes from 45 mph (Foothill to Ontario) to 40 mph (Ontario to Olive) to 35 mph (Olive to SR-91) your likelihood of hitting every green light will be very high. Please note that in school zones near Corona High School and Raney Intermediate School the speed limit is 25 mph when children are present.
The new traffic signal timing pattern is in effect Monday through Friday from 5 a.m. to 9 a.m. Special care was taken to maximize the northbound direction of travel while minimizing the delay for other directions at each traffic signal to the best extent we can while still achieving our goal.
So, are tired of waiting on Green River? Try Lincoln!
By the way, Traffic Engineering is also working on this same re-timing on Main Street, stay tuned.
