91 Freeway: New lane opens between Corona and Anaheim, offering some relief to commuters

There's some relief for commuters in Riverside and Orange Counties as a new lane on the westbound side of the 91 Freeway is now open.

The 2-mile-long stretch between Green River Road in Corona to the 241 Toll Road in Anaheim Hills opened Thursday night -- a day ahead of schedule.

All lanes on the westbound side of the freeway will close at about 11 p.m. Friday night so that crews can install overhead signage. According to the Riverside County Transportation Commission, the roughly closure is scheduled to continue until 5 a.m. Saturday.

The closures are part of the remaining elements of the $29-million 91 Corridor Operations Project, which began in November 2020.
