Welcome to the Interstate 10/Wildwood Canyon Road Interchange Project
In 2008, the City of Yucaipa adopted the Freeway Corridor Specific Plan (Plan) which encompasses 1,242 acres located in the southwest portion of the City. This Plan, which is bisected by Interstate 10 (I-10), has carefully studied and reviewed the increase in economic development and population growth occurring within the City, eastern San Bernardino County as well as Riverside County. As a result, the Plan has identified the need for a new interchange between Live Oak Canyon/Oak Glen Road and County Line Road, the Wildwood Canyon Road Interchange. Not only will the proposed interchange mitigate local and regional traffic congestion, but it will also help the City secure long-term economic sustainability while incorporating community amenities such as trails and open spaces in order to create a cohesive area where residents can live, work, shop, and play.
In 2018, the City of Yucaipa and the San Bernardino County Transportation Authority (SBCTA) initiated the Interstate 10 (I-10)/Wildwood Canyon Road Interchange Project (Project). The proposed Project is part of an effort provide better access to the City of Yucaipa as well as I-10 for commuter vehicles and trucks, and to address future traffic volumes and travel demands.
A Project Study Report (PSR) studied traffic impacts, environmental constraints, and Project costs. The PSR evaluated three design concepts for a new interchange at the I-10 and Wildwood Canyon Road to be further evaluated in the Project Approval and Environmental Document (PA&ED) phase (current phase). During PA&ED, a total of four alternatives will be evaluated, one No-Build alternative and the three build alternatives identified in the PSR. All alternatives will be further studied and evaluated for planning, design, and construction.
