Harley Knox Boulevard Widening Completed

The Harley Knox Boulevard widening improvements project between I-215 and Perris Boulevard has been completed. 

This capital improvement project for the City of Perris widened Harley Knox from two to six lanes and placed rubberized asphalt on the finished roadway surface.

Through California’s Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle), the City was able to obtain a $100,000 grant which funded the placement of rubberized asphalt. 


As a result of this project, approximately 9,135 California worn-out tires were diverted from the waste stream.

The new construction along Harley Knox Boulevard in Perris include more than 9,000-recycled tires.

There are many benefits of using rubberized asphalt compared to conventional asphalt. Some of those include improved roadway durability, improved roadway surface longevity, increased skid resistance, noise reduction, and the reuse of scrap tire rubber makes it environmentally friendly.
