By Gail Wesson
Southbound Gilman Springs Road at Alessandro Boulevard is not expected to open until at least 8 p.m. after a trio of spot fires broke out on the roadside about 6:29 p.m., according to the California Highway Patrol traffic incident website.
Cal Fire/Riverside County Fire Department requested that the one lane of Gilman be closed from Alessandro by Moreno Valley southeast to Bridge Street headed toward San Jacinto at 6:47 p.m.
At 7:06 p.m., the CHP website noted that county fire was estimating the closure would be needed for approximately one more hour.
Gilman is a popular commuter route out of the San Jacinto Valley to points west as well as access to the Soboba Casino near San Jacinto.
