What are the Project Alternatives?
The Draft EIR/EIS describes the four proposed Build alternatives and two design options to realign SR-79 to the western area of the San Jacinto Valley. This is in addition to the No Build (no action) alternative. Maps of the proposed Project Build alternatives are available from the links below. All begin south of Domenigoni Parkway and end south of the San Jacinto River on Sanderson Avenue. As you review their locations on the maps notice that there are two main choices in the south near the community of Winchester and two main choices in the north in the city of San Jacinto. Between Florida Avenue and Cottonwood Avenue, all Build alternatives are similar.

Has a Preferred Alternative been identified for the Project?
A Preferred Alternative has not been identified for the Project. The Cities of Hemet and San Jacinto have identified their preference for a Locally Preferred Alternative (LPA) for the Project. The City of Hemet’s LPA was adopted by resolution on May 13, 2008, and is shown on the Project Location Map in green. The City of San Jacinto LPA was adopted as part of their general plan in January 2006 and is shown on the Project Location Map in yellow. The County of Riverside has not selected an LPA.
