State Route 52 Nighttime Closures This Weekend
SAN DIEGO—Construction crews will close all eastbound lanes on State Route 52 (SR-52) from Interstate 805 (I-805) to State Route 163 (SR-163) Friday at 8 p.m. until 9 a.m. Saturday. Westbound SR-52 will be closed at the same location Saturday at 8 p.m. until 11 a.m. Sunday.
According to Caltrans, the closures are needed to construct a new culvert beneath the highway lanes.
The detour for the eastbound closure will be to take southbound I-805 to eastbound Interstate 8, and then to northbound State Route 125 to eastbound or westbound SR-52.
During the westbound SR-52 closure, westbound motorists will be detoured to southbound SR-163, to westbound I-8, and to northbound I-5 and then to SR-52.
The work is part of a project to replace the existing culvert on SR-52 just east of Convoy Street. The project is expected to be completed by the end of the year.
Motorists are reminded to drive alertly and obey all traffic signs.
