Paving Temecula Grade for the Inland Highway
By Jeffery G Harmon

     Rainbow Canyon Road begins in Temecula at Pechanga Parkway and winds its way up the Temecula Grade towards the San Diego County line and the unincorporated community of Rainbow. This route was constructed over a hundred years ago as part of Riverside County's first highway, the Inland Highway.

     The construction of the Inland Highway in Riverside County began with the passage of a $1,125,000 Good Roads bond issue that passed in December 1913. The bond provided the county the means to not only construct the Inland Highway, but also to construct feeder roads as well.
