SAN DIEGO – Magnolia Avenue will be closed in both directions between Prospect Avenue and the Magnolia/Prospect on-ramp to southbound State Route 67 Friday from 3 until 5 in the morning. The southbound Magnolia/Prospect Avenue on-ramp will remain open during the closure for use as a detour, according to the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans).

State Route 67 will be closed between Prospect and Woodside avenues Sunday through Tuesday nights, Dec. 20 – 22 from 9 until 5 the next morning.  Crews will also close the Magnolia Avenue on-ramp to southbound SR-67 beginning an hour earlier at 8 on each of these three nights.

The closures are needed to allow crews to grade and erect bridge falsework as part of the SR-52 Sunny Side Gateway project.

Crews will place detour signs to assist motorists around the closures.
