CALTRANS - State Route 74 Raised Curb Median Safety Project

The City of Hemet continues to work with Caltrans and our local businesses that might be affected by the future Caltrans safety project which proposes to construct a raised curb median on State Route 74 (SR 74) from West Acacia Avenue to Ramona Expressway. The plans posted here are in draft format and are subject to change. Caltrans expects to build the project in 2018.

Public Outreach Opportunities

The City will be hosting two business outreach meetings to discuss the proposed project and logical placement of median breaks and/or alternative methods of treatment. The intent of these meetings is not to focus on whether or not the project is viable, but if it were built, what best solution could be.

The two meetings are currently scheduled for:  

Meeting to Discuss State Street to Western City Limits
Tuesday, August 9, 2016, 8:30 am to 10:00 am
Golden Village Palms RV Resort
3600 W. Florida Avenue
Hemet, CA 92545

Meeting to Discuss State Street to Eastern City Limits
Wednesday, August 10, 2016, 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm
Southwest Riverside County Association of Realtors (SRCAR)
2355 E. Florida Avenue

Once these meetings are completed, the City will assess the recommendations and hold a public forum for a Resident Advisory Group which will be comprised of residents throughout the community. The City is soliciting letters of interest from Residents to represent the community at this meeting. Letters should be sent to:
