Find out what’s going on with the $86 million Ortega Highway construction project during a Feb. 11 meeting scheduled in Wildomar.
The 6 p.m. public meeting will take place at Animal Friends of The Valleys/Southwest Communities Animal Shelter located at 33751 Mission Trail.
The meeting is expected to last until 7:30 p.m. and will address construction of the I-5/Ortega Highway interchange project that begins this month. The project is designed to ease congestion at the busy interchange that’s most utilized by residents of Orange and Riverside counties.
Caltrans representatives are scheduled to share project information, including major closures and detours.
The meeting is a joint effort between Caltrans District 12, and the cities of Lake Elsinore and Wildomar. The meeting was prompted by angry city officials; click here to read more about that story.
