Supporting Growing Community, Numerous Travelers
Riverside County, California is roughly the size of the State of New Jersey. While it is the fourth-most populous county in the Golden State, it is also powered by tourism. Riverside County infrastructure projects meet the demands of a growing population as well as numerous visitors to hot spots such as Palm Springs, Rancho Mirage, La Quinta, and Coachella.
While travelers know Riverside County for film and music festivals, championship golf and tennis, and Joshua Tree National Park, more than 2.4 million residents call the area home and communities stretch across fertile river valleys, low deserts, mountains, foothills, and rolling plains. Infrastructure is vital to support air travel, 2,243 miles of roads, 108 bridges, and a safe and reliable water supply in the desert.
