Night Work on State Route 67 Dye Road/Highland Valley Road
SAN DIEGO—Caltrans is planning night time closures on both directions of State Route 67 (SR-67) and along Dye and Highland Valley roads Monday and Tuesday from 7 until 5 in the morning. The closures are needed for pavement work on the shoulders.
One-way traffic control will be in place during the lane closures resulting in slower traffic flow. Motorists driving through the work zone are advised to allow additional travel time.
The SR-67 Dye Road/Highland Valley Road Interchange Project will widen SR-67 from two to four lanes through the intersection. Improvements include reconfiguring the intersection to accommodate commercial truck turns, adding a second left-turn lane onto the highway from both Dye Road and Highland Valley Road as well as adding an equestrian trail on the northerly side of both roads. Other improvements include push-button pedestrian crossings, upgraded drainage, and Americans with Disabilities Act-compliant concrete curbs.
The project will help reduce existing and future traffic congestion and address mobility concerns due to peak hour traffic delays. The $14 million project is funded with state and San Diego County transportation funds. The roadwork portion of the project is expected to be finished in about a year.
Motorists are reminded to watch for highway workers and moving construction equipment in the project area.
Please contact the Caltrans Public Information Office at (619) 688-6670 with questions or concerns.
