SAN DIEGO –Work to repair the dips on westbound State Route 52 (SR-52) begins this weekend, according to the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans).  There will be no access to westbound SR-52 during daylight hours between Interstate 805 and SR-163 Saturday and Sunday.  Both days the lanes will close at 6 a.m. and reopen at 6 p.m.
