71 Freeway Road Work - NF

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) District 8 is performing ongoing pavement delineation work and installing conduit as part of the fiber optic communications project on State Route 71 (SR-71) through the fall of 2022. The fiber optic project involves installing Transportation Management System (TMS) field elements and a fiber optic communication system on SR-71.

Work will require alternating lane and on- and off-ramp closures of northbound (NB) and southbound (SB) State Route 71 (SR-71) between the Los Angeles / San Bernardino County line and State Route 91.

Caltrans advises that drivers should anticipate traffic delays and plan ahead. To stay on top of roadwork in the Inland Empire go to Caltrans District 8 and sign up for commuter alerts.
