Update - Immediate Closure of Stetson Bridge
The Stetson Bridge, located between Cawston Avenue and Warren Road, is now closed. The closure is being implemented due to the deteriorated condition of the bridge and to ensure the safety of the motoring public.
While the historic bridge has been determined to have reached the end of its service life, the City will be moving forward with construction of a replacement bridge and is expecting to start construction this calendar year.
Stetson Avenue will be closed to all traffic between Cawston Avenue and Walden Weaver Road. Access to Hemet-Ryan Airport will continue from Stetson and Walden Weaver Road. A detour route is planned using Warren Road, Mustang Way and Cawston Avenue to assist motorists around the closure. Signage will be used to clearly delineate the detour route.
If you have any questions, or for additional information, please contact the City of Hemet Engineering Department at 951-765-2360.
