The City of Lake Elsinore, in cooperation with Caltrans District 8, proposes to improve the existing interchange at Railroad Canyon Road and to design a new interchange in close proximity to Franklin Street. Two Cal Poly Pomona senior project teams delivered a Project Study Report (PSR) for their respective interchanges. A PSR is the initial feasibility report that thoroughly investigates potential design alternatives that meet all project needs. Due to the close proximity of the two interchanges and their impact on each other, both project teams worked closely together in order to develop several design alternatives that meet or exceed the state, city, community, and future needs.
The City of Lake Elsinore is located in Riverside County in the state of California. It is approximately 70 miles southeast of Los Angeles nestled on the east side of the Santa Ana Mountains.
