State Route 79 ADA Sidewalk Project begins in Hemet


SAN BERNARDINO – The California Department of Transportation will begin work this week on a $473,000 project to construct sidewalks, driveways, curb and gutters and other Americans with Disabilities Act related items on state Route 79 from Menlo Avenue to Oakland Avenue.

The work hours will be 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., and the No. 2 lane will be closed with continuous long term closures for approximately five weeks.

Caltrans advised motorists to “Know before you go!” To stay on top of roadwork in the Inland Empire, visit and sign up for commuter alerts, view live traffic conditions using QuickMap and planned lane closures. Follow the latest information on Facebook and Twitter.

For those with sensory disabilities requiring alternate formats such as Braille, large print, sign language interpreter, etc. and those needing information in a language other than English, contact Joy Schneider at (909) 383-6291 or TTY 711 by Jan. 31.
