CITY OF MORENO VALLEY TO WIDEN CACTUS AVENUE NEAR MAIN GATE

The City of Moreno Valley will start to widen Cactus Ave soon and continue through January 2014. The construction area will start where the north-bound, high-speed off ramp from I-215 meets Cactus Ave. all the way through to Veterans Way. This may cause some disruptions with entering the installation and possible traffic delays. For now, the main gate will remain open as usual. However, the project will be monitored to ensure the safety of Team March members and Moreno Valley residents. Please be patient and cautious while driving in and around the construction zone.
