The Riverside County Transportation Commission (RCTC), along with Caltrans, propose to realign State Route 79 between Domenigoni Parkway and Gilman Springs Road in the San Jacino-Hemet area. The Final EIR/EIS was approved on October 29, 2016.Record of Decision issued December 16, 2016. SR-79 Project Newsletter attached here. To see RCTC project schedule click here.
The project is in the expenditure plan for Measure A, Riverside County’s ½ cent sales tax measure for transportation, which will fund a portion of the project. However, the expenditure plan assumed 50% of all project expenses would be paid for with federal and state transportation funding sources. These sources are currently funded far below historical levels; therefore, until additional funding is available, the Commission cannot proceed with right-of-way acquisition or construction of the project. We will update as new information is made available.
