SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the SC Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.

Thankfully, no one in our household continues to commute to the Inland Empire. However, as the toll road authority now considers alternate routing of the connection between the 241 to the I-5, they are overlooking a major, existing and obvious issue with the 241 connection up north with the 91. Traffic there during the commuting hours is always crawling for several miles.
Unless this congestion is resolved, there is little point to putting even more traffic on the 241 by a new, direct connection between the I-5 and 241 through San Juan or San Clemente, which poses its own issues for each of these communities. An “end to end” solution is needed.
