Document Description
The SR 79 Project proposes to realign SR 79 from Domenigoni Parkway to Gilman Springs Road, a distance of approximately 18 miles, in the cities of Hemet and San Jacinto and unincorporated Riverside County. As the lead agency under CEQA and NEPA, Caltrans identified a preferred alternative for the SR 79 Realignment project. The identification of the preferred alternative was based upon the data presented in the draft EIR/EIS and partially recirculated draft eir/supplemental draft eis, as well as comments received from agencies and individuals during the public review periods. Alternative 1 br has been selected as the preferred alternative, and is presented as such in the final eir/eis.
