Residents and commuters have mixed reactions on the State Route 91 project in Corona.

During a special ABC7 event with Alysha Del Valle, residents voiced their concerns or support for the expansion project, which is expected to cost $1.4 billion.

The project started in 2014 and will aim to reduce commute times by 12 minutes round trip in regular lanes and as much as 78 minutes in newly developed toll lanes.

The project calls for 30 new and reconstructed bridges around the freeway, as well as two toll lanes and one regular lane added in each direction. New lanes are expected to open in 2017.

According to the SR-91 Project website, the expansion has created 16,200 jobs in the area.
