CITY OF MORENO VALLEY PLANS FOR CAcTUS AVENUE WIDENING PROJECT NEAR MAIN GATE

The City of Moreno Valley will start construction to widen Cactus Ave in approximately two weeks 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 for the duration of the construction in order to ensure the safety of the employees of March Air Reserve Base and the citizens of Moreno Valley. Please be patient and cautious while operating your motor vehicle in and around the construction zone.
