The high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) lane on the Riverside Freeway (State Route 91), between Tyler Street and Magnolia Avenue will be closed for three weekends, starting this weekend, Sept. 26-28, and continuing Oct. 3-5 and 17-19.

Construction of the La Sierra Avenue overpass requires the closure of the freeway's eastbound and westbound HOV lanes from 8 p.m., Friday, until 5 a.m., Sunday, on all three weekends.  

Additionally, both eastbound and westbound No. 1 and 2 lanes will close from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. Friday and Saturday nights on all three weekends.

La Sierra Avenue over the freeway will remain open during construction, although delays are expected.  All businesses will remain open and accessible.  Drivers should use alternate routes, such as Pierce, Magnolia or Tyler Streets, during the closures.

The project is expected to be completed by the summer of 2009.

For more information, call the City of Riverside Public Works Department at (951) 826-5760.
