The Riverside County Transportation Department will be installing striping improvemnets at the intersection of Varner Road and Boca Chica Trail starting on Monday, August.
The improvements consists of installing a westbound right turn lane on Varner Road; a merge lane for vehicles making a southbound right turn from Boca Chica onto Varner; the relocation of the stop bar exiting Boca Chica; and other work.
Tall delineation markers will be installed at key locations to provide additional guidance to drivers.
These improvements have been developed in response to a request from the Tri-Palms Shenandoah Springs community. These improvements will help improve visibility and traffic safety at the intersection.
Last week, Ophelia Porter was killed while making a left turn on Varner. The California Highway Patrol says she drove in front of a passing truck.
Work should be done within two days. There will be temporary flagging, but no road closures.
