State Route 67 Closure for Blasting

SAN DIEGO – State Route 67 (SR-67) will be closed in both directions from Prospect to Woodside avenues from 3 – 8 a.m. on Saturday, March 7 according to the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans).

Blasting is scheduled to occur between 6 and 8 that morning on southbound SR-67 just south of Woodside for construction of a drainage system.  There will be some brief periods of noise and shaking.

Detour signs will direct motorists heading northbound to exit the freeway at Bradley Avenue and follow the signs to Magnolia Avenue, then reenter the freeway from Woodside Avenue.   Southbound drivers will follow the same detour in the opposite direction.

Motorists are advised to use caution while traveling through the construction zone.
