Metrolink has a new way to travel to Los Angeles on Saturdays and Sundays, thanks to new weekend service on the 91 Line that began July 5. Riders can catch two morning trains at stations in Riverside or Corona and head west to Los Angeles Union Station. One afternoon train and one evening train are available to whisk riders back to Riverside County. Metrolink trains are convenient, relaxing and only $10 for a weekend day pass. They also are a smart way of avoiding the 91.
Crews restriped lanes on eastbound and westbound 91 between Serfas Club Drive and Green River Road two weeks ago and placed concrete barriers, known as K-rail, on both eastbound and westbound 91 between Serfas Club Drive and Green River Road last week. Motorists are reminded to watch for the K-rail and recently restriped lanes and to be aware of the new 55 MPH speed limit within the construction area.
Work will be under way this week on on-ramps and off-ramps along the 91, on the interchange with Interstate 15, and on the interchange with the 71. Closures associated with this work will be occurring at night, starting at 9 pm and ending by either 4 am or 5 am.

NerdWallet, a consumer advocacy website, recently analyzed the Los Angeles area to see which Los Angeles suburbs performed the best across various economic, social and quality of life categories. Corona has been recognized for its high population growth.
To compile this ranking, NerdWallet evaluated the Los Angeles-Long Beach Combined Statistical Area, which includes all cities, CDP’s and towns in Los Angeles, Orange, Ventura, Riverside and San Bernardino counties that were classified as a “place” by the U.S. Census. This list excluded places that were more than an hour’s drive from Los Angeles. Over 150 places were included in this analysis.
NerdWallet ranked Los Angeles suburbs across several categories, including:
1. Most Diverse
3. Where Women Make More Than Men
5. Most Educated
6. Smallest Gender Pay Gap
7. Highest Healthcare Coverage
“Located in Riverside County, Corona came in second on our list of Los Angeles’ fastest-growing suburbs,” said NerdWallet analyst Divya Raghavan. “Corona’s population grew by 3.3 percent between 2010 and 2012.”
Other places recognized include Yorba Linda and Fontana. See the full study here.
