Ramps to State Route 67 to Close for Night Work

SAN DIEGO – Beginning Tuesday evening at 9 crews from the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) will close the connector ramp from westbound Interstate 8 and the Graves Avenue on-ramp to northbound State Route 67.  Motorists will be detoured to the Prospect Avenue on-ramp. 

This is an additional closure to the work being done this week to close SR-67 between Prospect and Woodside avenues though Thursday from 9 until 5 the following morning.  Crews will also close the southbound on-ramp from Magnolia Avenue at 8.

The additional closure is needed to reduce the number of vehicles merging into the construction work area that have created queue during recent work.  Changeable Message Signs will be placed on westbound I-8 to notify motorists of the detour.

The work is part of the SR-52 Sunny Side Gateway project that is scheduled to be completed by spring 2011. 

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

For more information, please see the State Route 52 Sunny Side Gateway Project Brochure at www.dot.ca.gov/dist11/facts/SR-52brochure.pdf or contact the Caltrans Public Information Office at (619) 688-6670.
