About the SR-91 Early Action Projects

State Route 91 (SR-91) is a major east-west transportation corridor and is integral to the Southern California freeway network. To improve traffic flow along the freeway, Metro and Caltrans District 7, in collaboration with the Gateway Cities Council of Governments (GCCOG) are proposing improvements on SR-91.

SR-91 Early Action Projects
Metro completed a Feasibility Study in 2015 which analyzes and identifies several “hot spots” on SR-91. These “hot spots” are chronic traffic congestion areas attributed to population/employment growth, increased trucking activity due to economic growth in the goods movement industry, and deficiencies in design, capacity, and operations of an older freeway system.

The Early Action “hots spots” Projects (EAP) on SR-91 are currently undergoing environmental assessment for final design approvals and will be constructed within the next 2-5 years. The EAP’s have been developed and advanced to address the short-term needs on SR-91. These projects are focused on improving some of the most congested sections of SR-91.

The following projects are SR-91 EAP’s:
• Westbound SR-91 Alondra Bl to Shoemaker Ave Improvement Project
• Eastbound SR-91 Atlantic Av to Cherry Ave Auxiliary Lane Improvements Project
• SR-91 Central Av to Acacia Ct Improvement Project

Proposed Early Action Improvements SR-91
Metro and Caltrans, in collaboration with the Gateway Cities Council of Governments, are proposing early action improvements to the SR-91 corridor, including:

  • Operational enhancements
  • Ramp reconfigurations to enhance safety
  • Arterial intersection enhancements
  • Auxillary lane improvements
  • Safety features
