State Route 79 will be partially closed near San Jacinto next week for road work.

Crews will be closing one lane in both directions from Gilman Springs Road to the Ramona Expressway on Monday to Friday from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m., according to the California Department of Transportation.

Temporary striping will be put in place to shift all traffic lanes outward and enable crews to install a k-rail in the median, part of a $4 million safety project to construct a median concrete barrier and rumble strips on the highway.

The California Highway Patrol will be on sight to assist with traffic safety.

Once the k-rail is in place, normal construction hours will be Mondays through Fridays from 4 p.m. to 6 a.m.

The traffic reconfiguration will remain in place throughout construction to enable all lanes to remain open throughout the project. There will be occasional intermittent lane closures during evenings for construction staging purposes.
