Slow down! The speed limit has decreased to 55 mph through the project area. New speed limit signs have been posted and the California Highway Patrol has increased patrols, due to speeding in the area. Please note that traffic fines are doubled in construction areas.

The 60 Truck Lanes Project is widening a 4.5-mile section of State Route 60 between Gilman Springs Road and 1.4 miles west of Jack Rabbit Trail through unincorporated Riverside County’s Badlands between Moreno Valley and Beaumont.
