Westbound SR-52 near Landfill Closed for Night Work

SAN DIEGO – Westbound State Route 52 (SR-52) between Interstate 805 and SR-163 will be closed tonight and Thursday night for crews to prepare to repair the dips in the roadway.

Construction crews from the California Department of Transportation will close the route from 9:30 p.m. to 5 a.m. both nights for survey work.  This work is necessary before paving can begin to repair the dips. 

The I-805 ramps to eastbound SR-52 will be closed, along with the eastbound ramps from SR-52 at Convoy Street and Genesee Avenue.

Weather permitting, work to repair the dips on westbound SR-52 will begin this Saturday and Sunday between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m.

Signs are in place to alert motorists of the closure.  Drivers are advised to allow extra travel time and seek alternative routes.
