hmmmm, faster than the 91 to the 15 you say....?
Looking at google, says parts are either private or restricted. I head from SJC to Riverside 215/60 a few times a month...
Sorry missed your message before. I find, even on the weekends, the 91 east comes to a crawl, pretty much from Imperial highway to .. well.. it even sucks on the 15S once you transition, sometimes all the way down to Temescal. If it's early enough, 91 to 15 is MUCH faster. I mean it's full highway speed. There's only so fast you can go on Ortega.
I have friends who used to live in Wildomar and I'd take Ortega to get to their place. They live in East Temecula now, so it's about a break even, but at least I'm not parked on the 91/15. I'd rather move and get there in the same time, than stop/go for an hour. I'll take Ortega west bound instead of sitting on the 91 on a sunday afternoon. Or parked on that big fly-over transition from 15N to 91W. Eff that.
Parts of Ortega are private or restricted? Not sure what parts that would be, go through there all the time with no trouble.
