Track Construction and Maintenance

Perris Valley Line Extension 

Construction of the Perris Valley Line (PVL), which will extend Metrolink commuter rail service on the 91 Line, began in October 2013. Led by the Riverside County Transportation Commission (RCTC), the PVL is the first extension of Metrolink service since the Antelope Valley Line was built in 1994. The PVL will continue rail service 24 miles from the downtown Riverside station to south Perris, with four new stations being constructed at Riverside Hunter Park, Moreno Valley/March Field, Downtown Perris and South Perris. The project also includes construction and rehabilitation of railroad tracks, upgrade of 18 at-grade crossings and improvement of existing tracks. The PVL will provide greater access to Southern California’s commuter rail network for residents in Menifee, Murrieta, Temecula, San Jacinto, Hemet, Lake Elsinore and Wildomar. The PVL is expected to open to riders by late 2015. For more information click here.
